Screening of the documentary "Playground" 

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the screening of the documentary, "Playground".  "Playground" examines the issue of human trafficking in the United States--specifically, the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC).  Following the screening, Lisa Hofflich, Past President of the Junior League of Bronxville and Past Co-Chair of the New York State Public Affairs Committee (NYSPAC) of Junior League led a discussion about advocacy and the Trafficking Victims Protection and Justice Act (TVPJA) - the primary piece of legislation in NY that seeks to address child sexual abuse and exploitation.  For more information on this issue click on Community Impact above and go to our Issue Center.

34th Annual Holiday Sharing Drive

The Holiday Sharing Drive is a mainstay philanthropic effort in our community since 1980.  Providing more than 1200 individuals each year with needed food, clothing, household essentials and holiday gifts.  We were so excited that our League and the community came together and were able to match 220+ families with sponsors this year.  It will be a wonderful holiday for so many because of the communities efforts. Thank you for your support.

Thank you to all of the wonderful vendors and sponsors of our grand prize raffles, (Desires by Mikolay, Skinny Buddha, Metropolitan Home Hardware and Bath LLC and Doublevision Photography) for making the event a success!

Diamond Jubilee

Thank you to all who were able to celebrate 60 years of service in our community at our Diamond Jubilee.  It was a great success. We were able to raise over $15,000 to help support our efforts in combatting hunger in our area as well as our hands on work with victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation and work to bring education and advocate for victims of Human Trafficking.  We would like to thank our partners, Mount Kisco Wines & Spirits and Doublevision Photography without whom we would not have been able to have such a successful evening.  Thank you to those who attended, our donors and our members who helped plan the evening.  We look forward to the new service year and being able to continue our efforts in the community.
