MCABW hosts 13th Anniversary Celebration

By  | 

Conroe, TX – The Montgomery County Association of Business Women (MCABW) celebrated 13 years in the community connecting women with other like-minded business women at their anniversary luncheon at Conroe’s Incredible Pizza Tuesday. Over 100 members and their guests participated in congratulating Carol Gooch, Executive Director and Founder, for developing the organization in 2005 with a motto of “Women Helping Women.”

MCABW is a local forum for area business women to gather together to serve the community and grow their business. The MCABW Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was created to grant scholarships to graduating female seniors in the community every April. MCABW Foundation has awarded 40 college scholarships in the past 8 years to seniors based on their academics, involvement in their community or school, and letters of recommendation. This spring 96 applications were received from Montgomery County high schools. The majority of scholarships were awarded to students that are first generation college students with a large financial need.

The MCABW 13th Anniversary Luncheon had over 100 attendees.

Mario Valadez, managing partner with his wife Kim of Conroe’s Incredible Pizza, has partnered with MCABW for 13 years to host the monthly luncheon and Board meetings at his venue. At the luncheon he surprised Gooch with a check of $1,300 representing 13 years of support for MCABW to benefit the scholarship fund.
