National Charity League, Inc. Del Sol Chapter Honors Class of 2023 for Leadership and Service

Over 8,000 Hours Volunteered in San Diego County by Senior Class

The Patronesses and Ticktockers of National Charity League, Inc. (“NCL”), Del Sol Chapter, will be holding their Senior Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at THE US GRANT in downtown San Diego, where they will present and honor the accomplishments of the Chapter Senior Class. This annual NCL event recognizes the graduating Senior Class for their outstanding leadership and community service, most notably the more than 8,000 volunteer hours that the mothers and daughters in the Class of 2023 have contributed to over 30 Del Sol philanthropic partners in San Diego County.

“We are very proud of the tremendous service dedication of our Senior Class and it has been a joy to see these young ladies “Lead with Kindness” in helping our community so impactfully.  Throughout their six-year NCL journey, these 22 compassionate leaders have been empowered to make a difference for others and put NCL core values of leadership, culture and philanthropy at the heart of all they do,” shared Colleen Peterson, NCL Del Sol Chapter President. Together with their mothers, the Class of 2023 has volunteered with local and national organizations including Autism Tree, My Girlfriend’s Closet, Reading Legacies, Serving Seniors, Helen Woodward Animal Center, MCAS Camp Pendleton, Alzheimer’s Foundation, American Heart Association, Feeding San Diego and many more.

NCL Del Sol is excited to have former Del Sol Chapter President Nancy Halladay as the Master of Ceremonies and the Met Gala themed evening will feature many chapter traditions such as the presentation of each senior along with her parents or guardians, a father-daughter dance, a tribute to each Senior being recognized, and a festive celebration with family and friends.
