Junior League Centennial Celebration

In 1979, The Junior League of San Francisco launched its first cookbook, San Francisco A La Carte, followed by San Francisco Encore in 1987, San Francisco Flavors in 2001, and San Francisco Entertains in 2010

The Junior League of San Francisco will celebrate A Century of Commitment on November 1, 2012, at City Hall, and the entire city is invited to participate in the fund-raising dinner and celebratory event.  San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and California Governor Jerry Brown will commemorate with proclamations, Senator Dianne Feinstein will be inducted as an honorary member, and Heidi Kuhn, founder of Roots of Peace, will provide the keynote speech.

A century ago, a group of women created the organization that not only contributes to improving the community, but also trains women as effective volunteers and leaders. Since then, women of The Junior League of San Francisco have volunteered over six million hours and donated over $24 million to the Bay Area through direct grants, advocacy and training.  From World War I relief efforts to helping those suffering with AIDS, to fighting domestic violence and assisting families in need, with hundreds of programs in its history, The Junior League of San Francisco is frequently the first organization to address issues in the Bay Area.  Find out how you can get involved at JLSF.org.
