The Moon Valley Women’s Club was founded in 1970 for women residing in and around the Moon Valley neighborhood in Phoenix. Our legacy of friendship and community service remains strong, and we currently have over 250 members of all ages. Our club year runs from September to May, and we hold monthly social events with interesting programs that are open to our members and their guests. In addition to our monthly programs, we offer dozens of daytime and evening activity groups covering a variety of interests.
Our current activity groups include: Five Book Clubs, Three Bridge Groups, Four Bunco Groups, Games such as Pinochle, Progressive Hand & Foot, Canasta, Mah Jongg, Poker, Mexican Train Dominoes, Shanghai Rummy, Cribbage, Euchre and Hearts, Hiking and Walking groups, an Investment Club that manages its own mutual fund, the Matinee Friends, Restaurant Review and Museums groups that are all very active and hold monthly outings, Needlework, Painting, a wonderful Gardening Club, Wine Tasting, and a newly-launched Baking Club.
MVWC Service Project is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm of our organization. This group distributes money and purchased goods to deserving organizations in our community that are nominated by our members. Grants are awarded twice per year, and there are also volunteer opportunities offered throughout the program year. To date, we have raised close to $92,000, with just over $14,900 in 2022-2023.
