Annual Gala

Junior League of Chicago’s Annual Gala 2022 – Highlighting the Mad Hatters on their 100th anniversary

We are pleased to announce that the Junior League of Chicago’s 2022 Annual Gala was a smashing success! We are so thankful to our attendees, donors, and sponsors for their continued support and engagement.

This year’s Annual Gala celebrated the Mad Hatters’ 100th anniversary and the impact the Committee has had on the city of Chicago.

Through the paddle raise, silent auction, and raffle, we raised $145,000 to support the mission of the Junior League of Chicago. Congratulations to our Sustainer Wine Basket Raffle winner, Lacey Chester! Thank you so much for participating. We hope you enjoy the generous donation of wines and champagnes from our Sustaining Members.

With 300 people in attendance, this year’s Annual Gala was a great start to our larger in-person events and we look forward to many more in 2022 and beyond.

We want to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who joined us at the event, as well as those who participated in the fundraising opportunities from home. Your support is what makes the JLC’s work possible.
