Old friends and many new members have come together to kick off the beginning of a new year for the Young Women’s League of New Canaan.
Initiatives for this year will be centered on children in need. “As we focus on children we will have the opportunity to get to know, and contribute to, many deserving charities changing the lives of children in our community,” said President Jill Tobin. The YWL’s dedicated charity research group is thrilled to have received applications from over 50 worthy organizations.
The YWL is excited to announce the recent launch of the Little Rams Service League, dedicated to introducing preschool and elementary-aged children to service. By participating in age-appropriate volunteer opportunities, the League hopes to help children learn the value of giving back to our community. Service projects will include a coat drive for Person to Person, and October pumpkin delivery benefitting Stay Put in New Canaan.
In addition to signature community events such as the Easter Egg Hunt and Couture for a Cause, the Young Women’s League is adding a number of exciting events to this year’s calendar. A Masked Ball for Children in Need will be held in October, and a spring children’s run is being planned. There is a limited number of tickets left for the Masked Ball happening a week from Friday. It’s going to be an exceptional event with a high-end raffle set to give away a Dad’s Dream day (Tickets to Rangers game on 1/3/2016, one hour shooting lesson for two at Orvis Sandanona, $500 gift certificate to Family Britches, haircut at G Albert, a supply of shaving goods from Harry’s), a Chloe bag from Walin & Wolff, and a diamond necklace from Peter Suchy Jewelers. Other sponsors include Porsche of Greenwich, Go Figure, Kristin Thomas, Walter Stewarts, and Ashley Howell Petraska of Berkshire Hathaway.
