Little black dress initiative "lbdi"

London called, High Point answers! 

May 1-5, 2017 the JLHP will host its first Little Black Dress Initiative!

What is the LBDI?

In 2014 The Little Black Dress Initiative was pioneered by the Junior League of London with the goal to “Make Poverty Unfashionable”. While their fellow Londoners were attending London Fashion Week that month, local Junior Leaguers were wearing the same black dress every day to work, parties, dinners and events to raise funds and increase awareness of poverty in the city. The first campaign was so successful they decided to take the initiative worldwide.

We are answering London’s call and will launch our first ever LBDI the week of May 1-5, 2017. 

This awareness campaign seeks to increase knowledge around the limits poverty can play on choices of expression and opportunities for employment, by asking our members to wear one dress each day for one week to:

  1. Highlight the story of those in need who have few resources such as interview and work clothes, to enter the employment process and to remain at work;
  2. Understand how limited resources can affect daily life; and
  3. To fundraise, supporting the Junior League of High Point and it's mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve the  community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

2017 Spring fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who helped make our spring fundraiser at Pandora's Manor a huge success! We would not have been able to do it without the team at Pandora's Manor, the String & Splinter Club, our sponsors, volunteers, and community support! 

We look forward to seeing the positive impact Pandora's Manor has on our community and we are so thankful and lucky to have been able to showcase it to the public!


Poinsettia Sale

Thank you to all who purchased poinsettia's from The Junior League of High Point's 10th Annual Poinsettia Sale for holiday decorations.  We had a very successful sale because of your generosity!

Our 11th Annual Poinsettia Sale will be here before we know it! The plants will again be available in red, pink, or white and with the option of small, medium, or large. When thinking of your holiday decorations - use the Junior League!

Designer showhouse

Bringing back a Designer Showhouse in 2015 was a great success for the Junior League of High Point. Raising over $95,000 well surpassed our goal! We want to thank the High Point community, the Design and Furniture community, our membership, and partners for your hard work and dedication. Our success would not have been as great without each of you. 

Trucks & Tunes

The Junior League of High Point will be entering its 4th year of hosting Trucks & Tunes, a community based fundraiser that brings together the art of music and food. Our event in 2016, held at the Briles House, was hugely successful in helping us carry out our mission due to the support from our community, membership, and partners.
