The Junior League of Los Angeles (“JLLA”) hosted its 16th Annual Harvest Boutique Fundraiser on Sunday, December 6, 2015 at the JW Marriott at LA Live. The fabulous day featured a shopping boutique with over 40 vendors, including Kate Spade, Joie, Lorna Jane, Sole Society, and Sugarfina. The event also included a lovely celebratory luncheon at which the JLLA honored its Community Achievement Awardees, Echoes of Hope founders Luc and Stacia Robitaille, and Spirit of Voluntarism Awardee, Ellen Weitman. During the luncheon, the Robitailles facilitated a “pop up” live auction, auctioning off multiple, exclusive LA Kings experiences they generously donated. Over 700 guests attended, and close to $95,000 was raised. All of the proceeds raised from the successful event will be used by the JLLA to directly support its projects and programs in the Los Angeles community. For 90 years, the JLLA has committed itself to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Contributing 60,000 volunteer hours per year, our trained volunteers promote our mission through five direct community service programs and targeted advocacy. Our current focus areas are family literacy and self-esteem/empowerment of foster youth.
