The Home Tour will return in the Spring!
Your favorite Hill Country Home Tour will be held in the Spring of 2024
when the flowers are blooming and
the hills are green.
Please mark your calendars for this fun two-day event held on April 12 and 13.
More details will follow including
ways you can be involved, sponsorship opportunities, ticket information, and much more!
Thank you for supporting this important fundraising event now in its 36th year!
Please consider making a charitable donation.
As a charitable organization, we depend on the support of our Wimberley area community. Your support is attained through attendance of events such as Home Tour and Spring Event, and also through direct monetary donations.
Our events have been staples here for decades. The most significant impact of our fundraising is on the students who depend on our scholarships and the nonprofits who depend on our donations.
In May 2023, we awarded $22,000 in scholarships and $53,000 in community donations. (Click here to see the complete list of beneficiaries.) Our goal is to increase those numbers for distribution to our recipients next year.
We are asking you to help us fulfill our commitment to the community. And remember, every dollar you donate is a tax deductible donation.
Thank you for your support.
The Year In Review 2022-2023
We had another great year and ended with a wonderful fundraising commitment by board member and members new and old! We continued to grow our membership with 148 members at the end of the year. The membership came together, volunteered and attended meetings and many events.
We met at the Messina Inn and the First Baptist Church. We've enjoyed having 29 new ladies join our organization. They are joining the board and chairing several yearly events. We're excited to see them more often as they grow into their new roles in the upcoming year.
We continued with our theme of CONNECT, HAVE FUN, DO GOOD. Our speakers have been a very interesting group including Wimberley artist Maxine Price, the Texas Wine and Grape Growers, City Council members Rebecca Minnick and Teresa Shell sharing with us Wimberley's future plans for the community. April Samson, Executive Director of the Bamberger Ranch, inspired us with the legacy of the Preserve, an ecological restoration and conservation project in Dripping Springs. And acclaimed photographer Rodney Burseil brought his photos and the stories behind them. We continued to support the Hays Caldwell Women's Center with cash donations and undergarments. The Center is always so appreciative of our generosity.
Everyone had a great time at the Murder Mystery Dinner. High School Students volunteered to do all of the acting and costumes. We're not sure who had more fun! Breakfast with Santa followed and was well attended by almost 250 children and parents. Home Tour just keeps getting bigger and better and this year we even had a yacht to bid on! The Preview party was held at a home overlooking the Blanco River and all of the attendees had a great evening.
Spring Event had nearly 50 fun things to do from February to May. We had lunches, brunches, Tablescapes, Moonlight Serenade Dance, tours, cooking classes, pickle ball, and acting lessons. The Golf Tournament had a good turnout in spite of some rain.
The Board thanks everyone, including the chairs, volunteers and participants, who continue to help and give back so that we were able to assist eight high school seniors with scholarships and grants for 26 non-profits. We were able to award $75,000 in total this year.

The Civic Club Legend
In the spring of 1979, a group of women in the area recognized the need to reach out and meet the newcomers to our rapidly growing community. The Wimberley Community Civic Club was organized.
The purpose of the Civic Club is "to nurture a strong community spirit through service and financial support while fostering lasting friendships among the members."
Membership is open to all Wimberley Valley area residents. We urge all newcomers to join or let us know you are here, come to a meeting, and then decide if you would like to join our group to help make Wimberley a better place to live.
