It is indeed my pleasure to introduce you to the Marvelous and Sweet Missouri City – Sugar Land Chapter so affectionately known as “Mo-Sug”. I want to thank our members for allowing me to serve as President. It has been a unique and gratifying experience being a part of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated that not only gives back to our families but also allows friendships to be created. As the 21st President of this premier chapter I am following the footsteps of some great leaders that have served in the South Central Region. Over 41 years ago our charter members were motivated and persistent in pursuing a goal of success for the Missouri City, Fort Bend County Area.
Our 2017-2019 Chapter Theme is E3: Engage. Educate. Empower. My vision is to ensure that every member and child is engaged through the formation of healthy relationships that encourage and support individual growth as leaders and active citizens of society. Every member and child will understand the mission, programmatic thrusts, governing documents and philanthropic ideals of Jack and Jill through educational, interactive programs and activities. As a result every member and child will be empowered to make a difference in every aspect of his or her lives.
The Missouri City – Sugar Land chapter is blessed to have 84 dynamic, professional mothers who embody the Jack and Jill motto – “Let’s Work, Let’s Play, Let’s Live Together!” Our signature fundraising event is the Biennial Beautillion where we recognize and celebrate our young men after a season of enriching workshops consisting of financial literacy, etiquette, a clothier experience, community service and honing their golf skills. The proceeds of our event benefit the Jack and Jill of America Foundation – our philanthropic arm and a local charitable organization that serves children, teens and young adults.
As you peruse our Chapter Website you will appreciate our rich history, love for our families, and desire to serve our communities. On behalf of our Executive Board, Members, Associates, Father’s Auxiliary and our children – Welcome to Mo-Sug!
For Jack and Jill,
Erika Gentry, MD, MBA
