Throwback Thursday

In honor of the upcoming festivities, this week’s Throwback Thursday pays homage to one of the most exciting events of the New York Junior League’s fundraising season — Winter Ball!

The NYJL Winter Ball is a special evening, bringing together volunteers, family, and friends to honor recipients of our Outstanding Sustainer and Outstanding Volunteer Awards, the NYJL’s highest honor. Our largest fundraiser also celebrates both our community projects and our volunteers who dedicate themselves to New York City. Winter Ball proceeds make our community work in NYC possible and contribute to our fundraising goals.

Check out our Board of Managers celebrating back in 2008. As styles change, there is one thing that remains constant, our focus on the community.
