Dallas's First Women's Social Club
Slipper Club offers a unique network of friendship and opportunities for professional women throughout Dallas. While still committed to the founding vision of fostering lasting relationships, our mission has expanded to include community service and a charitable giving program.
In 1995, Slipper Club became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. To date, we have raised $1,100,302 for local nonprofit organizations and charitable agencies. Every year Slipper Club researches and selects a beneficiary to support women and children of Dallas in need.
Founded in 1934, Slipper Club was the first women's social club in Dallas and today boasts more than 500 active members. The club was founded by Mrs. Mary Blankeny Mallon, Mrs. Lavonne "Bonnie" Compton Crawford, Mrs. Lucy Jo Davis Burnett, and Mrs. Sally Dunlap Tetreau. These four Idlewild debutantes formed Slipper Club to be an organization that would promote friendships among Dallas' future female leaders.
