Women’s Leadership Breakfast is JLW’s annual celebration of women’s leadership, where attendees will hear from inspiring speakers about their leadership journeys, have the opportunity to network with other attendees, and kickoff a celebration of International Women’s Day.  



JLW’s Marketplace Committee partners with area retailers to host exclusive shopping events and ongoing partnerships throughout the year, often with a sales discount to JLW shoppers and a percentage of total event sales donated back to the League.  
Kids in the Kitchen is an annual event showcasing ways kids can eat smart and make healthy lifestyle choices. Targeted to children ages 3-13, local chefs host healthy cooking demonstrations, fitness experts lead high-energy exercise sessions, and certified nutritionists are on hand to answer questions.  



Since 1993, JLW’s Tossed & Found rummage sale has welcomed nearly 80,000 shoppers, providing bargain prices on high-quality, gently used merchandise and raising funds to support JLW’s work in the community. Over Tossed & Found’s 27-year history, the sale has raised more than $2.4 million.
