Golden Tree

Thu, Nov 9 through Sat, Nov 11


Golden Tree is a premiere holiday shopping event hosted by the New York Junior League (“NYJL”) that features a variety of brands and vendors in categories including apparel, accessories, food and gifts for the home.

These curated brands offer attendees the perfect opportunity to address all of your festive shopping needs. We will be hosting an in-person shopping experience, a silent auction, and a series of events to get you prepped and in the holiday spirit! 

Golden Tree generates vital monetary contributions supporting the community work performed by the NYJL. Powered by more than 2,000 women volunteers, the NYJL works with more than 60 community-based organizations to advance children’s social-emotional learning and to provide life skills programs to youth and adults who are navigating periods of difficult transition. In addition to ticket sales and proceeds from the silent auction, retail vendors at Golden Tree donate 20% of all sales back to the League. The success of Golden Tree and other fundraising events, along with generous donations from individuals and businesses, helps the NYJL achieve the mission to improve the lives of women, children, and families in New York City.

Our event is open to everyone – including members and friends of the NYJL.
