Rating: 4 stars  

The objective of the DeLeon Club of Victoria is to participate in Educational and Civic events. The History of the DeLeon Club of Victoria and its past and present leadership is one of "Service and Dedication" to the community it serves. A non-profit organization such as the DeLeon Club of Victoria will always have its critics and malcontents but will continue to work for the betterment of the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I have followed the Deleon of Victoria for many years. The main reason is that they awarded a scholarship to my daughter back in 2006. That year they also awarded $5,000 in scholarships to other area students. I always support their efforts because of the many donations they make to our community. This is the only Hispanic organization that has been around for many years and every year they d
donate to the community thousands of dollars. One of the big fundraisers they hold is the annual Christmas dance and is attended by hundreds of people who have a great time. It is well run and yes sometimes someone doesn't get seating where they wanted it so make your reservations early. It is sad that people speak negative of an organization that at least is trying to do good in our community, What are you doing to improve our community?

They do a great job to help educate our youth and help several non-profit organizations. I would like to see them tackle other community issues like hunger and homeless

When I wanted to donate to the scholarship fundraiser by attending the annual dance., I was promised a particular tables/chairs. However, when I arrived, I was told and given a far worse tables/chairs than promised. It seems to me the this organization is NOT organizied. Perhaps they should get someone different to run the dance tickets.
I may try again, but not this year for sure.
I was VERY dissappointed. Seemed they did not care at all.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire someone who knows how to do fundraisers properly.

Crooks. I have found the this Club does not do as they advertise. I believe they just want my money so that they can spend it how they want. This is not a regular Civic Organization

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close up and move away.

I have found that the core members of this civic club are working for the most part to further their name and political views. And for the most part, alot of their time and monies have gone to the fore mentioned objective and strong liberial democratic party ties.
Although, the club originally was founded by non-political views. It is my opinion that the club has ventured
off its past history of educational scholarships(100%) to maybe only 40%. It's sad, but I hope donors would consider looking into its core members and their past associations to better understand where their money donations will ultimately go. Be wary when this club ask for sponsors for an event and find out where they spend it in detail.
