We are delighted to announce that the Junior League of Cincinnati Centennial Gala will take place Saturday, March 7, 2020 at the historic and beautiful Music Hall Ballroom.The event will feature dinner by Eat Well using recipes from past Junior League of Cincinnati cookbooks, music presented by the Sly Band, an open bar, and an after party to celebrate our 100 year legacy.

This year’s gala, Gems of the Queen City, will benefit the Junior League of Cincinnati and its mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Since its inception, thousands of JLC members have proudly helped incubate or accelerate over 120 projects to help our community shine brightly.
