Chillicothe Junior Civic League is excited to announce the organizations that will receive proceeds from the 2015 Junior Civic League Christmas Gala. This year, 20 grant applications were approved, with requested funds totaling approximately $100,000. The requested funds will go to help local organizations in their efforts to establish new programs, renovate facilities, and provide additional support for people in the community with medical, financial, and transportation needs.
The Junior Civic League of Chillicothe is pleased to invite everyone to the 27th Annual Christmas Tree Gala, themed “Let Your Heart Be Light.” This year's event will be held on November 14, 2015 at the Chillicothe Country Club. Silent Auction begins at 6:30pm. Live Auction with the Christmas Tree packages will begin at 8:00pm. Tickets are on sale now for $35.
The Junior Civic League of Chillicothe was formed in 1950 by three women who decided there was a need in the area for a women's community service group.
Since then, the Leagues mission and philosophy has evolved into building partnerships, by receiving contributions and performing fundraising activities for distribution back into the community.
The League currently consists of 50 women between the ages of 21 and 48 who serve on six primary committees. The annual Gala has grown into the League's largest event and fundraiser. Over the past 16 years approximately $384,000 has been raised through Gala and has been given back to the community through over 155 charitable organizations.
The League is appreciative of the interest and support of the Community through the years!
