Glamorous guests dressed for a prestigious black tie event with gowns, tuxedos and masquerade masks gathered for an evening of mischief and mystery at one of Long Island's premier Gold Coast mansions with an elegant sit-down dinner and open bar. Supporters enjoyed entertainment by a Burlesque troupe, Twisted Circus & Cabaret, music, dancing, raffles and so much more.

Proceeds will benefit the Junior League of Long Island's annual volunteer projects.

I sat down with board and committee members about the importance and goal of the Junior League of Long Island.  During my interview with Junior League of Long Island President Deidre J Delay I asked, "I would like you to talk more in depth about what the organization is really all about."  Ms. Delay conveyed, "Yes absolutely, so our mission is to fold.  We are really focused on having a great community impact on Long Island helping out community members in need.....our neighbors who need something from us also at the community at large.  We are also about training women to be volunteers...to do better things for the community.  So they work for us for a couple of years and then they go out into the world and help other organizations root up and become more impactful for non-profits."

JLLI is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

The Junior League of Long Island started in 1951 as the North Shore Service League, a non-profit organization.  It started with a group of 288 young women who did volunteer work within Nassau and Suffolk Counties. At that time, the members ranged from college age to 40 – which in Service League language was sustaining age and meant you could no longer vote. This “rule” is no longer in play. Their members range from all ages.

In 1959, the North Shore Service League purchased the current and existing Thrift Shop in Roslyn, NY – in the heart of Roslyn Village! Along with hard work, fundraising and help from The Phillips Foundation, the League was able to purchase this building. The building came complete with “Wash and Wilt with Sid and Milt” the laundromat on one side of the first floor and a set of tubs in the basement. There was a dancing school on the second floor. The ladies worked very hard – painting, cleaning, moving out furniture, moving in furniture, decorating and making a true “home” for the future Junior League of Long Island.

After much persuasion, the Association of Junior Leagues International came and inspected our organization, structure, fundraising and commitment, and they were finally inducted in the AJLI in 1962.
Their building is now considered “historic” and is maintained as such following Roslyn Village regulations. This building is truly their legacy and acts as their headquarters, general offices and houses.

The main and largest fundraiser is their Thrift Shop.
