The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) is proud to announce this year’s Spring Fling theme – “A Day at the Derby”. The Kentucky Derby themed event will be held on Saturday, May 7 from 4-8 pm. Sponsorships are still available, but are going quick for this “must attend” event!

This year, a majority of the Spring Fling proceeds will benefit FBJSL itself. In the15 years since our commencement, we have raised over 3.4 million dollars for local Fort Bend non-profits! A true volunteer organization, FBJSL relies on the generous contribution of its members’ own resources for administrative essentials. In order to continue to flourish and help the Fort Bend community even more, the League is focused on improving its infrastructure to support organizational, fundraising and technology needs. 10% of the proceeds will benefit the FBJSL Community Assistance Fund, which allows FBJSL to extend their financial support even further in the community by providing multiple smaller grants to local charitable organizations.

“A Day at the Derby” will take place at Sweetwater Country Club. A host of exciting fundraising events include a wine and bourbon pull, live auction, Julep and Gems raffle, and a chance to pick the winner as The Kentucky Derby will be shown live. This event is sure to end up in the Winner’s Circle so mark your calendars, and get your bow ties and big hats ready!

We hope you will support FBJSL’s Spring Fling 2016 as we raise funds for our organization. Sponsors to date include Rangeland Energy, Texas Direct Auto, RISE Communities, Johanson & Fairless, Lawyers, Dr. Dennis Halford, DDS MS, Halford Orthodontics, Dr. Larry Caldwell DDS, Dentistry for Children, FBJSL Board of Directors, Debbie & Philip Buckner, Dana & Jason Clement, Jennifer and Paul Gottlieb, Lucy & Ron Hudson, and Pure Barre Sugar Land.
