The National Charity League Stanford Hills Class of 2019 celebrated the culmination of six years of mother-daughter philanthropy, leadership and cultural learning during its 32nd annual Senior Recognition Event March 23 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Palo Alto.
At the event, each senior shared reflections on her six years in NCL that included tributes to the mother-daughter bond and their shared community service partnership. Many of the young women noted the NCL experience as more than “good deeds” and described it as a life-changing commitment.
