Junior League of Tallahassee
Welcome

The Junior League of Tallahassee (JLT) was established in 1960 by a group of visionary women committed to serving the community in a volunteer capacity.

 

Today, the JLT has more than 500 members and remains dedicated to developing the potential of women as leaders and grassroots volunteers in charitable causes that improve Tallahassee and the surrounding area.

 

Our community projects aim to provide children and families the opportunities to succeed in school through health, self-esteem and basic needs.

 

The talented women of the JLT include business executives, homemakers, teachers, executive directors of non-profits and entrepreneurs, all dedicated to making the Tallahassee community better.

Whale of a Sale

We are excited to announce that the 2014 Whale of a Sale will be held on February 28 and March 1 at the Tallahassee Mall. This year marks the 40th Birthday of the Junior League of Tallahassee’s signature fundraising event. The Whale of a Sale is our community’s largest and most popular garage sale showcasing gently-used, high-quality items at bargain prices including housewares, furniture, sporting goods, children’s items, and many, many more. Through our mission to enhance the lives of children and families, 100 percent of the funds raised by this yearly event go directly back into the League’s Community projects.

This year we will be hosting a Community Service event during the Whale with the Boys and Girls Club.

A special thanks to our generous partners and sponsors. Be sure to like the Whale page on Facebook and follow the Whale on Twitter for exciting news and updates!

 

Help spread the word about the 2014 Whale of a Sale by printing our poster!


Hope you can join us to wish the Whale a Fabulous 40th Birthday!


 

 
Not Your Grandma's Junior League

Tallahassee Magazine, May-June 2014

By: Brian Rowland, Publisher

 

 

I have, for the past year or so, had the opportunity to serve as a community advisor to the Junior League of Tallahassee. When asked to participate, I had no concept of what my role would be or what benefit my observations or comments could provide to the organization.

 

At first, it was attending a Q&A session with other advisors. Several JLT members in leadership roles asked us to be candid and transparent with our feedback. The one question that sticks with me is what was the community’s perception is of the League.

 

The general response was that there are mixed community perceptions based on what demographic you might be asking — and I have heard many. Here are a few examples:

  • An elitist social class of busybody Southern ladies.
  • Rich ladies who wear sweaters and pearls, have parties and go out to lunch a lot.
  • An extension of college sorority life.

And many have no perception of who Junior Leaguers are or what they do. None of these descriptions casts a positive light on this organization and, today, all of these perceptions are stuck in the era of black-and-while television reception of the ’50s. Through Tallahassee Magazine, Emerald Coast Magazine and our 850 regional business magazine, I have had numerous opportunities to interact with the Junior League organization and individuals in Tallahassee and Destin over the past two decades and can therefore refute all of these archaic perceptions.
