On May 25, 2017, Ladies of the Empire attended Ohlone College’s Scholarship Awards Reception where 117 students received over $230,000 in scholarship money, with LOTE at the forefront, giving a scholarship to a new student, a transferring student and a continuing student.    

LOTE proudly met the recipients that we selected.  Each of them subtlety demonstrating the very reason why we selected them.  Luis being the first in his family to go to college, was joined by his proud mother Olivia.  Samir who embodies the entrepreneurial spirit informed us he’ll be going to school over the summer and Megan, an activist majoring in Anthropology, expressed her deep gratitude to LOTE and its donors in a kind and authentic way.

Additionally, 2017 is Ohlone’s 50th anniversary.  To celebrate, they awarded 50 full-ride scholarships, meaning 2 years of tuition, books and fees are entirely paid, to deserving students from local high schools.  Ladies of the Empire was proud to sponsor 5 of those students, all who graduated from Washington High School and plan to attend Ohlone College in the fall.

Our recipients want to send a message to our donors, thanking each of you from the bottom of their hearts for supporting their dreams of going to college.  LOTE knows these scholarships transform the lives of the recipients; we also thank you for your continued support and donations.

We love to hear from our youth that they are doing well! 

“Hi everyone I just wanted to say that I’m very thankful for all the support you guys have given me. I couldn’t have made it through my first year of college without you guys. So far everything is going great at Chico State getting to know more people and friends along the way. My grades are good as well getting A’s and a couple B’S. I’m excited for next year and the years to come. It won’t be easy but I know I can make it through! Thank you once again and as always go Wildcats!!”

We are extremely proud of Ramiro and his achievements! GO RAMIRO!

4th Annual Cocktails and Couture

The Ladies of the Empire were well represented at the 4th annual Cocktails and Couture event, benefiting the 49ers Academy in east Palo Alto.  It was billed to be an unforgettable night and it lived up to its promise.  The Ladies had the pleasure of meeting the legendary Dwight Clark and Dennis Brown while enjoying appetizers, sipping wine and shopping for jewelry from local vendors.   As the evening grew dark, the Ladies enjoyed a vibrant fashion show with models from the 49ers and local community showcasing clothes from Wilkes Bashford.  Seeing Torrey, Chanel and TJ Smith along with Quinton Patton and Shaun Draughn strut their stuff on the pink carpet brought smiles and lots of cheers from the Ladies!  We will be back next year.  Will you join us?cocktails-photo
