Leadership Grapevine 25-Year Anniversary
Celebrating 25 Years of Developing Grapevine's Leaders

Leadership Grapevine - 25 Year Anniversary

Leadership Grapevine Alumni & Community Leaders - we are asking you to be a part of this 25-year anniversary celebration. Two major projects are being planned – a Flag Plaza and a Concession Trailer Refurbishment. We are working toward raising $25,000 to complete these projects, which will serve as a symbol for the 25-year anniversary of this program and the dynamic leaders who have graduated from Leadership Grapevine.

The Concession Trailer is utilized for every festival. It is a time-honored tradition for Leadership Grapevine students to volunteer every year to develop teamwork while giving back to the community. After 20 years, the trailer needs upgrades to remain a festival standout!

The Plaza will be built in a highly visible location on the Chamber of Commerce grounds in honor of Leadership Grapevine's 25th anniversary.

The Flag Plaza will be built in a highly visible location on the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce grounds. A project rendering is attached. What a great way to leave a legacy in Grapevine! Several donation levels include a company or family name engraved within the structure. Other benefits include:

  • Promotion of your business by leaving a historical legacy
  • Recognition as a community contributor and influential business leader
  • Generating economic development by continuing to expand your business network by staying engaged

Our Alumni are being asked to join the Alumni Association by contributing a $100 in dues. For this initial year, all dues will go towards these two projects. Thereafter, annual dues will go toward their professional and personal development. Dues will renew each March. Alumni may contribute at any donor level in addition to their dues. The following donation benefits are available.

The Women's Division volunteered their time with the Grapevine-Collevyille ISD Back to School Fair, where deserving GCISD students received the supplies they need to get them started for another school year. The Women's Division also supported the event monetarily by raising $30,000 to go toward school supplies, which translated to more than 1,600 packs of supplies.

KL Kathee Livengood Memorial Scholarship - 70th Birthday Party - Sloan and Williams Winery - Grapevine - Rocky Gribble

KL Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Kathee Livengood Memorial Scholarship was established in 2013 by the Grapevine Chamber Foundation to honor the legacy of Kathee Livengood and her commitment to community service. Kathee was a successful realtor; however, she also found time to support every civic organization and cause in Grapevine throughout her life.

The Grapevine Chamber Foundation supports the mission to carry Kathee’s legacy forward by awarding scholarships to deserving women in Tarrant County, for the purpose of assisting them in developing the skills needed to obtain employment or improve their earning potential.
