The South Coast Chapter of the National Charity League recently celebrated its Senior Ticktocker class of 2023. The graduation event, a formal tea, took place at Old Ranch Country Club.
Since 1925, National Charity League has been a mother-daughter organization dedicated to philanthropic service, in addition to leadership development and cultural experiences. The young women are known as Ticktockers.
This year’s class began their NCL membership in seventh-grade and have collectively contributed thousands of hours of philanthropic service to the Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Cypress and Long Beach communities. This year’s graduating class was honored for their service to the community, as well as their leadership and academic accomplishments. The chapter’s annual Senior Recognition ceremony, dinner and dance at The Petroleum Club was held on May 21. Elayna Hodge received the Merci Award, a special recognition awarded to a senior Ticktocker who has earned the most philanthropic hours throughout 10th-12th grade.
