2024 Centennial Celebration

 

 

 

 

 

2024 is a very special year for our League. Why? Because it marks the 100th Anniversary of the Junior League of Lexington! 

In 1924, our charter members saw an opportunity to make a difference. Through the combined energy and vision of our membership over the last 100 years, our League has truly made a difference in the Lexington community. Through the fundraising efforts of the Horse Show and Holly Day Market, through the historic preservation of the Bodley-Bullock House, and through the countless hours spent serving our community, each of you inspire and transform the lives of those in the Bluegrass through your devoted service and generosity. And like the women who preceded us, we approach the future with happy anticipation of a Junior League of Lexington that will continue to make a difference well into the future.

 

Join the Lexington Junior League during International Women's Month as we celebrate women in Central Kentucky making a difference in our community. Your $100 tax deductible donation, restricted to use with the Junior League Centennial Fund and Grant Process supporting local organizations, will allow you to nominate a woman in Central Kentucky, in Honor or in Memorium, whose contributions are meaningful both to you and the community at large.

All nominees will be spotlighted on the Junior League of Lexington March social media channels, March Bloom Newsletter (digital and print version), Junior League of Lexington website, and more. All nominees, or their families, will receive a card noting your donation in their name. 

Nominees will be recognized on social media and at the Junior League of Lexington's Centennial Gala on Friday, Nov. 8 at The Campbell House.

Please complete this application and submit your $100 donation to nominate yourself or another deserving woman. 

The 1924 Society is the Junior League of Lexington's new milestone giving society. Since our founding in 1924, the women of the Junior League of Lexington have served the greater Lexington community through volunteerism, philanthropy and historic preservation. Your gift will support the League's ongoing projects and operational expenses to ensure the future of our organization for the next generation.

Individuals who make gifts of $1,924 will be recognized as Founding Members, while those who make gifts of $1,000 will be recognized as Legacy Members of this prestigious society. Gifts can also be broken into monthly installments. 1924 Society membership offers:

  • Recognition on the Junior League of Lexington website, in The Bloom and on a plaque that will hang in the Bodley-Bullock House.
    Acknowledgment at all Centennial events throughout the year.
  • Invitation to a special reception at the conclusion of the Centennial year.
  • Founding Members will also receive a special gift of appreciation.
