As an energetic community volunteer, Cadie Johnson donates countless hours to numerous not-for-profit organizations in Tyler. She is an active member of the Junior League of Tyler, Inc., where she has served on various committees including the Mistletoe and Magic Committee and the Spring Sweep Committee. As a member of the Tyler Cattle Barons’ Gala Committee, Ms. Johnson has served in many capacities including Silent Auction Chair. She was the co-chair of the 2010 American Heart Association’s Heart Ball and was a member of the 2008 Heart Ball Committee.
“I volunteer because I believe that I can make a difference in my city and community,” Ms. Johnson said. “In many cases, a volunteer’s time is more valuable than money, and time is an asset we can all contribute.”
Ms. Johnson is currently chairing the Tyler Museum of Art’s signature fundraiser, Little Black Dress. The event is scheduled for Saturday, November 6, at the Tyler Museum of Art. Guests will be transported to Rio de Janeiro for an evening inspired by Carnival as they enjoy fabulous food, drinks, and live music. As a special treat, the paint will fly when artist Michael Israel takes the stage to create large-scale paintings in minutes. You will not want to miss this explosive performance. All proceeds benefit the Tyler Museum of Art’s programming, exhibits, and general operations.
Ms. Johnson was born in Tyler and has been a life-long member of the community. She is a graduate of Robert E. Lee High School and she earned her bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma. Ms. Johnson is also a member of Green Acres Baptist Church.
“My parents have always been involved in the community, and I’ve learned from them and my brother that it is important to give back to the community in which you live,” Ms. Johnson said. “I also enjoy being able to meet others who place value on serving the people of this community.”
