JLP Holiday Party 2018

By | Events | No Comments

On Friday, December 14th, 2018, the Junior League was thrilled to have over 80 members and guests join together at the Vassar Alumni House, for our annual Holiday Party. It was a great mix of Actives, Provisional Members, and Sustainers and we were able to swap different ideas and stories.

We were also able to collect donations for Give Way to Freedom. Give Way to Freedom is a private operating foundation that creates and supports targeted, culturally relevant projects aimed at providing care and empowerment to survivors of Human Trafficking, as well as those vulnerable to trafficking. Our vision is global awareness of the human trafficking crisis and the creation of worldwide sustainable freedom.

This great event continued to build upon the success of prior years with funds being raised to support the Junior League of Poughkeepsie’s programs and mission. Over 100 guests enjoyed live music and entertainment courtesy of Nellybombs, participated in a grand silent auction with multiple local items from the Hudson Valley, and bought raffle tickets for a chance to win a diamond jewelry set valued at $650! Guests also relished in a dessert bar with delicious cupcakes and pastries donated by local bakeries.
