New York Junior League 67th Annual Winter Ball

Saturday, February 23, 2019

Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers, 23rd Street and West Side Highway, New York, NY


Winter Ball is a special event, bringing together volunteers, family, and friends to honor recipients of our Outstanding Sustainer and Outstanding Volunteer Awards, the New York Junior League’s highest honor. Our largest fundraiser also celebrates both our community projects and our women volunteers who dedicate themselves to improving communities in New York City.

Since 1952, the Winter Ball has helped raise essential funds for the NYJL’s vital community programs while featuring the presentation of NYJL’s highest awards to seven volunteers who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to volunteerism and our community. Winter Ball proceeds make our community work possible.

About the New York Junior League

The New York Junior League (NYJL) is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Since 1901, the NYJL has been a leader in identifying and responding to unmet community needs. Through direct service, collaborations with other community organizations, advocacy initiatives, and women’s leadership programming, the NYJL provides a positive force for change within the communities it serves.


The NYJL believes that all women, children, and families should have equal opportunity, the resources to unlock their potential, and the structures to support them.


The NYJL welcomes all women who value its mission and is committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations, and communities.


Each year more than 2,800 trained volunteers donate their time to better the lives of women and children in New York City. The NYJL works with more than 50 community-based organizations and public agencies to deliver services and assistance directly to women and children in need.


About the Winter Ball

First held in 1952, the Winter Ball is one of New York City’s longest running charity galas. As the NYJL’s largest annual event, the Winter Ball raises the critical funds needed for the organization’s community programs, executed in partnership with over 50 other New York City nonprofits.


The Winter Ball honors seven women—two Outstanding Sustainers and five Outstanding Volunteers—who exemplify an exceptional commitment to volunteerism, while supporting the community efforts of the NYJL. The Winter Ball also increases awareness of important issues facing New York City residents through the presentation of the President’s Council Award, granted each year to an NYJL community partner whose work has proven particularly effective in improving the lives of New York City’s women, children, and families and with whom the NYJL closely collaborates.

About Avenues for Justice


Avenues for Justice (AFJ) keeps youth out of prison in a supervised program that provides court advocacy, tutoring, and mentorship, and gets participants the drug, alcohol, and mental health treatment and job training they need to succeed. The organization serves over 300 youths each year, and more than 90% of their graduates never commit another crime. AFJ has three primary goals.

Intervene and reclaim young people from lives of crime.

Give the overloaded court system a reliable alternative to incarceration.

Make the Lower East Side and East Harlem communities safer for everyone.


The NYJL works in collaboration with Avenues for Justice, most recently through three programs.


Healthy Beginnings

Until 2016, the Healthy Beginnings committee mentored youth, aiming to inspire and see what is possible beyond the confines of the world they know. NYJL members volunteered in leading youth in discussions on principles such as financial planning, job interviewing, and healthy living.


Steps to Success

The Steps to Success committee has sustained the work of Healthy Beginnings, offering job skills training and presentation workshops to empower youth to present themselves professionally, prepare for the workforce, make sound financial decisions, and take steps to independent success.



The CHEF (Cooking and Health Education for Families) committee empowers youth to make life-long healthy choices by presenting hands-on cooking workshops. These workshops teach clients to make healthy and affordable snacks, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and desserts. Additional education and activities are incorporated to increase commitment toward living a healthy lifestyle.


About the New York Junior League’s Leadership


Lauren Jenkins Chung, President 2018–2020

In addition to serving as the NYJL’s President, Lauren serves as Board Member & Fundraising chair for Calvary-St. George’s Episcopal Church, co-chair and Executive Committee member for the KIPP NYC Charter Schools Associate Council, Executive Board member and Community Affairs Vice President for the P.S. 234 Independence School Parent Teacher Association, and as an elected Board member for the Community Education Council, Department of Education Manhattan District 2. She was honored as an NYJL Outstanding Volunteer in 2014.


Prior to her role as President, Lauren volunteered in different areas of the NYJL. She has advocated for anti-human trafficking legislation and led statewide efforts in advocating on behalf of merit time for incarcerated survivors of domestic violence in conjunction with the NYJL and the Women in Prison Project. She has also been an integral part of the organization’s long-term strategic planning initiatives.

Diann Rohde, Chief Operating Officer


The NYJL is overseen and managed by two governing bodies—a Board of Directors and a Management Council. Trained volunteers hold the positions on both our Board and Management Council
