The Woman's Club of Glen Cove

Welcome to a Club with a long and rich history! The Woman's Club of Glen Cove, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was originally organized in 1936, then reorganized as a Woman's Club in May 1938. In September of that year, the Club was admitted to membership in the Long Island Federation of Women's Clubs.

Our Mission

Our mission, as stated in our by-laws, is to promote Charitable Activities, Sociability and the General Welfare of the Community. It is imperative that we continue our work with the mission always as our guide.

Dear guests, members, contributors and friends, I am very pleased to welcome you to our website. I hope you find it informative and useful and hope that we can use this medium to increase awareness to further help our cause. Feedback and new ideas are always welcome. Thank you for visiting...

- President



The Club hosts two fund-raising events annually. Members and guests enjoy socialization and entertaining programs and activities while supporting the Club's charitable endeavors.

Christmas Party

In the festive atmosphere of the beautifully decorated Swan Club, there is opportunity to peruse the exquisite raffle prizes. After dining on a menu especially selected for this occasion, an extraordinary program of musical entertainment that promises to appeal to the musical taste of everyone will be presented. Guests are welcomed, reservations required.

Event: Annual Christmas Party
Date: December 19, 2017
Location: TBD
Reservations: TBD

Fashion Show Luncheon

The Fashion Show Luncheon has been the Club's fundraiser for the past eight years, under the leadership of Terri Swenson, now retired. This year the club, is considering its options on what to do in 2018, with several ideas up for discussion. Their focus is still its mission to raise funds for local charities as well as to give our members an opportunity to serve the club, while entertaining members and guests.
Any fundraiser is a major production that requires time, effort and support of all of our members. Committees enjoy the camaraderie of one another to get the job done. Afterwards, it is always rewarding to four or five major charities that service our area, and members can take pride as the fruits of their labors are accepted by those organizations at their June meeting.

This year the Woman’s Club of Glen Cove Fundraiser is a departure from the past. On Tuesday, April 24, 2018,  we are offering a musical review of “Funny Girl”, produced by the Plaza Players. All proceeds earned will be donated to three organizations: Glen Cove Senior Center Sage Foundation, Melillo Center and the Interfaith Nutritional Network (INN). Please join us for an enjoyable day of fabulous prizes, a delicious luncheon and the aforementioned  entertaining musical review of “Funny Girl”. Prior to lunch being served, guests will deposit their raffle tickets in hope of winning one or more of  the many prizes.  There will be chance books, 50/50 raffle, and the iconic money hat that is designed in the theme of the show. The club has earned a reputation of offering baskets that are beautifully presented with contents that have universal appeal.

Becoming a Member

New members are vital to the future of the club. Women interested in joining the club attend two meetings as the guest of an active member. A letter of application is then written by the prospective member and a letter of recommendation is written by her sponsor. These letters are submitted to the Board for approval.

You don't have to live in Glen Cove to be a member. Club members live in Glen Cove and all of the surrounding villages of the North Shore's Gold Coast. Glen Cove is one of the two cities on Long Island. Historically the City has been the hub of this North Shore area. The charities the Club supports service the entire area as well.




Thank you to our wonderful members, friends and local businesses who generously contribute to our raffles, auctions and prizes. To make your own contribution of goods, services or monies, please email us.



Each year, proceeds of fund raisers are shared by local charities. This year's recipients are:
