Premier Event Updates – Donate to our Raise the Paddle Drive

RAISE THE PADDLE

Since 1923, the Junior League of Seattle has been making an important impact in the Seattle community. The Junior League of Seattle successfully meets the emerging needs of the community by initiating critically important programs and providing trained volunteers to manage them. Your donation to Raise The Paddle will help support the Junior League of Seattle and its community projects in many significant ways, for example:

  •  Provide weekly art projects for children suffering from severe mental and personality disorders and clinical depression through the Healthy Futures Art Project.
  •  Develop critical thinking, build communication skills and inspire creativity through interaction with original works of art through The Northwest Art Project.
  • Mentor teen girls in foster care during a monthly fun yet educational activity through the League’s partnership with Treehouse.
  • Empower our youth to make healthy lifestyle choices through Kids in the Kitchen.

Please Raise Your Paddle high in the air on February 25th to help JLS continue to provide exemplary programs for our community. If you are not able to attend but would like to support the Junior League of Seattle’s community programs, you may donate here.

Monies raised through the 2012 “Raise the Paddle” will be used for the Junior League of Seattle’s community programs/projects, and will be designated between the programs/projects at its discretion.

To donate, visit our Raise the Paddle page on our website, and select Raise the Paddle 2011-2012.

It is through the support of our League members and our community that enables the League to continue its great work in the community. (All donations to Raise the Paddle are 100% tax deductible!)

Join your fellow Junior League Sustainers at our Annual Sustainer Luncheon! This year we are excited to feature Dr. Christina Orr-Cahall, CEO and Director of the EMP and JLS Sustaining member as our guest speaker. She will talk about “Museums: Through a Director’s Looking Glass”, exploring the changing dynamics in museums and their role in the community through the perspective of a 30-year veteran museum director. It includes the sharing of powerful, often funny and even occasionally sinister experiences.
