‘Girlfriends’ seek single parents for scholarship

I heard from my Girlfriend Georgia Rolan Zamora and the Celebrate Your Girlfriends 2012 Party is already in major planning mode.

Applications are being accepted now for the Celebrate Your Girlfriends Scholarship. This scholarship is for a single parent returning to or beginning a college education, including 2 year, 4 year or technical school.

Scholarship applications can be found by going to the Celebrate Your Girlfriends Facebook page or calling 512-430-0890.

The party is the first Saturday in May every year at Georgia’s house.

“This Ladies-Only party is an annual event that started after the passing of my lifelong friend, Sally Simmons-Wheaton. It is a reminder to celebrate the blessings of friendship,” said Georgia.

“We award a scholarship each year at the party, in memory of Sally. We also sell chance tickets for a beautiful handmade quilt,” according to Georgia.

There will also be a silent auction, live music, fun, food, drinks, door prizes, favors and a variety of vendor booths.

Put this on your calendar Ladies. Grab a Girlfriend and make plans to attend the first Saturday in May.

And single-parents, get those applications in.
