On November 8, The New York Junior League (NYJL) hosted the 16th Annual Fall Fête: A Harvest Affair. With over 300 people in attendance, the entertaining and lively fundraising event generated vital funding for critical NYJL community service endeavors, including one of the organization’s signature programs, the Playground Improvement Project (PIP), which works directly with New York City’s Department of Parks and Recreation. Columbus Park and Foley Square in the heart of Chinatown in Manhattan marks the NYJL’s 25th PIP renovation and restoration.
