As a league of 45 women, JSL members have a busy year ahead. We plan to host 15 services projects in the community as well as distribute grants to local organizations. Please be on the lookout for JSL events and projects, we appreciate your support and involvement.
In order to put on these beloved projects and distribute grants we will host three fundraisers throughout the year. We will bring back Wild Wild West in it’s full glory. After a two year break influenced by COVID-19 restrictions we cannot wait to boot scoot the night away at the Tommy Lawrence Arena on February 25, 2023. We will also host our 7th Annual Birdies and Bogies Golf Tournament on October 1, 2022. Support for our golf tournament has grown to an all time high, we cannot thank you enough for the over $80,000 raised in the last two years. Last but not least we will host our Denim and Diamonds Daddy Daughter Dance. We would love your support in ensuring each fundraiser's success.
We look forward to another year partnering with the community to help those in need. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for partnership opportunities email@example.com
