Among their many other initiatives, the club held a card party for the purpose of providing scholarships to Baltimore area students. The event was held Saturday, February 1, 2014 at the Rawlings-Fulton Clubhouse, located at the Forest Park Golf Course, 2900 Hillsdale Road.

The group dined on roast chicken, sweet potatoes, green beans, rolls, chocolate cake, sweet potato and apple pie, iced tea, and lemonade, provided in buffet style by Charm City Caterers. Once lunch was completed, the room evolved into the card party. The games available included Bridge, Pokeno, Bingo, Bidwhist, Spades and Pinochle, all against a backdrop of food, friendship, fellowship, music and fun.

Vendors on hand selling fashion accessories were Evelyn's Place and Gwen's Gems.

This is an annual event as the Baltimore City Club seeks to help students. The co-chairs for the event were Melva Williams and Carrie Singleton-Jeter.

The president of the Baltimore City Club is Darleen Thomas.
