Junior League celebrates 100 years!

For a century the Junior League of Washington has been giving back to the community. They recently celebrated the last 100 years with their Centennial Fête. The black tie gala drew hundreds including DC Mayor Vincent Gray and the United Way’s Bill Hanbury. Held at the gorgeous National Building Museum it was a night of fun and continuous service to the community. The ladies are donating 100,000 books to children in need in the area over the course of the Centennial year. Simply amazing!

High-heels, hoops & a man cave?

Fab finds + babes with brains what more can you ask for this weekend. My reporter buddy Courtney Robinson is one of many ladies involved with Tossed & Found. It’s the ultimate rummage sale of the season sponsored by the Junior League. It’s your chance to get big bargains on quality pre-owned housewares, clothes, books, electronics furniture and more!   Everything for sale has been donated by members like Court or their friends and community supporters. The sale benefits the community programs JLW supports.

Did someone say PARTY? That’s right.. this Friday night (hate I’ll be out of town) grab your beau, hubby or perhaps person of interest to the sale site! JLW ladies are SO smart they’ve created a ‘Man Cave’ equipped with an open bar and big screen TVs for March Madness.  For you there’s shopping and a ton of really fantastic auction items!  Should be a great time and something different.  While they’re eyes are on balls… yours can be on bargains. Hoops and High Heels is Friday March 26th from 7:00-10:00 pm. Online ticket sales close at 12 am on March 26th. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $45.00.
