Rockwall, TX (May 9, 2023) – AMICA Rockwall, a local 501c3 charitable organization devoted to supporting children, youth and Rockwall County non-profit organizations, recently held their Annual Spring Luncheon in which they celebrate the success of the prior year. A significant part of the luncheon is the presentation of the proceeds from their annual Denim and Diamonds gala to a variety of community groups and organizations that serve the greater Rockwall area.
Proceeds from the 2022 Gala were gifted to:
RHS and RHHS High School Scholarships
Rockwall Education Foundation
Rockwall Boys & Girls Club
Rockwall Rainbow Room
Deep Roots Ministries
Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County
JER Chilton YMCA in Rockwall
FUMC Shoes for Kids
Lone Star CASA
Women in Need
Friends of the Rockwall County Library
Meals on Wheels
Rockwall Philharmonic Orchestra
Rockwall Summer Musicals
Rockwall Art League
Rockwall Community Playhouse
The luncheon is also a time to celebrate new members and recognize outgoing AMICA leaders and members. Six new AMICA sisters were welcomed into the organization which is always exciting as new relationships are formed and ideas exchanged which builds even greater enthusiasm. While saying goodbye is always hard, AMICA does so with great appreciation to those who have served the community faithfully, including President Kathleen Leahy who was recognized for seven years with AMICA. Jocelyn Craig was formally elected President and Stephanie Fussell elected Vice President for the coming year.
In speaking about the AMICA experience, Jocelyn Craig shared the impact her experience has on her life. “Over my last 6 years in AMICA, I have made amazing friends and I have also met silent role models. Each of these women I have met, and serve with, embodied some sort of life experience that I learned and grew from. It has helped mold me into the person I am today.” says Craig. “I am grateful for the opportunity to lead such an impactful organization and serve my community.”
This year, AMICA will celebrate their 49th year as an organization! Looking forward to the year, AMICA is excitedly planning for the 2023 Denim and Diamonds Gala to be held on October 7th at Boyd Farm once again for the purpose of supporting Rockwall County non-profits serving the community.
