Night of 5000 Charity Ball

NTJWC Boots and Bling Charity Event Tampa

On March 28, 2015, the GFWC New Tampa Junior Woman’s Club hosted our eighteenth annual Night of 5000 charity event, which has been our signature fundraiser since our club’s inception. This year’s theme was Boots & Bling so we surrounded guests with the sights, sounds and tastes from the Wild West! This casual country night under the stars was held at the University Area Community Development Center’s beautiful outdoor terrace. Guests bid on silent auction items, ate grub and vittles from the chuck wagon buffet, played casino style games and danced to boot stomping music.

All profits from the event go back to the community through donations and service projects. Examples of organizations we have helped in the past include RICH House, The Spring, Joshua House, Hillsborough Education Foundation, MOSI Partnership School, OASIS, Feeding America, Canines for Companions, Honor Flight, My Hope Chest, Hacienda Girls Ranch, and the list goes on!
