The 68th Annual Winter Ball
Saturday, February 29, 2020
Chelsea Piers, 23rd Street and West Side Highway, New York, NY
Winter Ball is a special event, bringing together volunteers, family, and friends to honor recipients of our Outstanding Sustainer and Outstanding Volunteer Awards, the New York Junior League’s highest honor. Our largest fundraiser also celebrates both our community projects and our women volunteers who dedicate themselves to improving communities in New York City.
Since 1952, the Winter Ball has helped raise essential funds for the NYJL’s vital community programs while featuring the presentation of NYJL’s highest awards to seven volunteers who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to volunteerism and our community. Winter Ball proceeds make our community work possible.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 68th Annual Winter Ball, Talavera by Twilight, on February 29!
