The History of Cy-Fair Women's Network
Cy-Fair Women’s Network (CFWN) was formed in the 1980’s and has a rich history of creating partnerships with other like-minded women. Our founding members recognized that personal development is as essential to success as professional enrichment. Members build a strong referral network with one another by collaborating purposefully to leverage each member’s contacts, skills and resources.
CFWN Is unique from other networking organizations in our dedication to serving the Cy-Fair and surrounding communities. As individuals, we strongly believe in sharing our member talents to serve the greater good. Each member is connected to the community and serves in a variety of ways.
The group selects a local charity quarterly to sponsor through a monetary donation as well as hands-on service opportunities throughout the year.
Optional meet-ups in the form of socials, Coffee (or Tea!) with the President or workshops serve to strengthen our bonds and form lifelong friendships. Our meetings are held the first and third WEDNESDAY of every month in Cypress. Please visit our event calendar to register for our next meeting.
For the past decade, Cy-Fair Women’s Network has partnered with Candlelighters (Childhood Cancer Family Alliance) for their ‘Adopt a Family for the Holidays’ Program. Through this program, CFWN members spread joy and celebrate the true meaning of the holidays by sponsoring a family facing childhood cancer.
In 2018, the Cy-Fair Women’s Network Board voted to name this long-standing tradition The Cavenaugh Candlelighters after Legacy Member Valerie Cavenaugh – who has carried the torch of Christmas Hope to many families over the years. We are pleased to honor Valerie as we continue to share love and hope with with this annual tradition.
