This year, Slipper Club has selected Camp Sweeney as our beneficiary. Camp Sweeney is part of The Southwestern Diabetic Foundation, and since opening in 1950, has become the largest camp in the world for children with type 1 diabetes. Every summer, Camp Sweeney serves over 1,000 children. For some, attending is their only exposure to a real summer camp experience. Along with summertime fun, campers learn how to independently manage their diabetes with habits that help combat the long-term physical and psychological effects. This life-style enhancing program builds confidence and empowers children to have the strength to make healthy choices. The camp provides a place where every child can discover what makes them special, not what makes them different.

Proceeds from our silent auction, donations, and other fundraising efforts throughout the year will be used for a special scholarship fund to support campers in financial duress. Camp Sweeney currently provides financial aid to over 86% of campers, and no camper has ever been turned away due to inability to pay.

Founded in 1934 by four Idlewild Debutantes, Slipper Club was the first women’s organization in Dallas. Slipper Club offers a unique network of friendship and opportunities for professional women throughout Dallas. In 1995, Slipper Club expanded its mission to include community service, a charitable giving program, and became a 501(c) (3) organization. Today, with more than 500 members, the women of Slipper Club are committed to helping lift up our community by serving Dallas-area women and children.
Each year, Slipper Club researches and selects a charity to serve as the sole beneficiary of the club’s fundraising efforts. Members spend the year volunteering and supporting the selected beneficiary culminating in Slipper Club’s Annual Gala and Silent Auction. With your help, we celebrate more than $730,000 for local non-profit organizations and charitable agencies.
