Empowering Women To Give Back And Get Involved In Their Community
On February 28, 2020, Brittany Green and Rhiannon Negron created Clear Lake Ladies Night Out during a casual coffee meetup at Java Owl Coffee House. They were inspired by women-owned business groups on Facebook on the Northside of Houston and decided to establish a similar community in Clear Lake Area. This one would we stand out with one big twist. To give back.
They wanted to be more than just another Facebook group or just another networking event group. They wanted to help women give back and get involved in their community.
Originally, they aimed to have 200 members, but they hoped for 500, and to their surprise, by February 29, 2020, Clear Ladies Night Out already had over 100 members. Realizing the need for support, they enlisted the help of Lauri Coppock, who became a moderator and a crucial addition to their team.
Over the next three years, Clear Lake Ladies Night Out accomplished remarkable charitable work, donating more than $10,000 to over 25 non-profits and families in need, all without yet being an official 501c3 organization.
In September 2022, the journey to obtain 501c3 status began. Lauri sought the assistance of a friend who was an attorney specializing in helping nonprofits with their applications. After two months of intense meetings, sleepless nights, and meticulous planning, CLLNO, Inc. was established as an official 501c3 organization.
As of August, 2023 the group is almost 1600 members strong and continues to grow every day. Each month brings a new community need and a new event.
CLLNO, Inc could not operate without the fantastic lineup of Officers and Board Members.
