Women improving the Washington DC Community since 1912

Silent and Live Auctions

The Junior League of Washington Soirée is an exclusive black-tie optional celebration held on Saturday, October 22, 2016, featuring robust silent and live auctions. For its 58th year, the Soirée will be at the Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel.

Throughout the evening, guests are invited to bid on fabulous items in the silent auction, including spa packages, unique getaways, major sporting event tickets, and so much more! Past live auctions have featured a weekend getaway to Forbes Five-Star luxury resort Sea Island; box seats to DC sporting events, a private Neiman Marcus shopping and makeover party (including a $1,000 shopping spree, champagne brunch for 10, makeovers, and gift bags), and more!

What's more, our Holiday Shops auctions provide vital support for the JLW's mission! Last year, Holiday Shops raised more than $32,000 exclusively from our silent and live auctions - funds that directly impact our community partners, including 826DC, Children's Hospital Foundation, Horton's Kids, and The Reading Connection.

Check this page frequently for updates on what items will be featured in this year's auctions!
