Fundraising Events

Each year, the YWL develops a slate of fundraising events to raise money for charitable grants to local organizations. Through our fundraising efforts the League has given more than $3 million to local organizations since its inception. Many events have also become valued annual traditions such as the YWL Holiday Market, the Easter Egg Hunt and the YWL Fashion Show.

Our main evening fundraising events this year are the Holiday Market and the Spring Fashion Show.

The YWL stays true to the mission established by our founding foremothers: Raise money each year to give it all away to deserving 501(c)(3) charities. The Holiday Market continues to be one of the top fundraising events for the YWL.

We hope you will “shop for a cause” at the market this year AND consider being a Patron of this event. Please review our Patron opportunities and don’t forget about your company contribution matching programs.
