PE Event Poster










The Junior League of Seattle will soon be rolling out the red carpet and celebrating its 90th year in vintage Hollywood style with the Premier Event of Lights, Camera, Action!  Be transported to the golden age of Hollywood for the League’s marquee fundraising and social event of the year as you enjoy delicious cocktails, wonderful food, silent and live auction items and plenty of fun with your friends and family!


The event will be held on Saturday, February 22nd at the historic and luxurious Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle.  Prepare to doll up in your favorite vintage Hollywood couture as you help the JLS reach the event fundraising goal of $165,000.  Proceeds from Premier Event will enable the JLS to continue to support important community programs with partners such as Seattle Children’s Home, Seattle Public Schools, Treehouse, Boys and Girls Clubs of King County, Childhaven and many more.

Buy your tickets by January 14th to take advantage of preferred pricing.  The event is currently 80% sold out; we are well on our way to welcoming 390 attendees this year.   Tickets are available on the JLS website.  Classic tickets are $175 and include a three-course meal and accompanying wine fit for a vintage celebrity star, check-in/check-out and two hosted bars. VIP tickets are $250 (VIP tables are $2,500) and include elevated meal and wine pairings, dedicated VIP check-in/check-out, dedicated VIP hosted bar, overnight auction item storage and next day delivery (within a 15-mile radius of downtown Seattle), special event recognition and theme-inspired VIP accessories.

The fun will continue into the night at the Premier Event After-Party where you can continue to rock your vintage look.  The After-Party will directly follow the Premier Event and will also be held at Fairmont.  Details and ticket information will be available soon.
