Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County celebrates 95 years

The Board of Directors of the Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County, along with its members, are set to host “Gala 95” marking 95 years of legendary community service on Saturday, April 2, from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., at The Patterson Club in Fairfield.

The evening will feature an open bar, appetizers and sit down dinner created by George Flay, Executive Chef of the Patterson Club, live music, dancing, a live auction and raffle. Proceeds from the gala will benefit The Junior League, its mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our community along with its “Healthy Families, Healthy Futures” Community Projects (Community partners include Center for Family Justice, Bridgeport YMCA, The Norma Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiative, Thomas Hooker School, Mercy Learning Center, and Operation Hope).

Some of our League’s past projects are parts of organizations that still continue to thrive in our community today! The Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County was involved in the formation of the Discovery Museum, the Beardsley Zoo, and the School Volunteer Association, just to name a few.

“The Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County is proud to be the very first Junior League in the State of Connecticut and equally proud of the contributions we have made over the past 95 years,” said President Samantha Collin. “We look forward to a night of celebration and to another 95 years of helping make our community a more vital place.”

“Gala 95” is open to the public. Advanced ticket sales required. Please visit www.jlefc.org for more information.
