Spring Fling: Shopping for a Cause

AURORA, IL (Jan. 8, 2014) — The Junior League of Kane & DuPage Counties, Inc. (JLKD) is excited to announce Spring Fling: Shopping for a Cause. JLKD’s annual Spring Fling is a fundraising event to benefit at-risk youth and their families throughout DuPage, Kane, Kendall and Will counties.

“Spring Fling is JLKD’s premier fundraising event and we expect to sell out again this year. This is a great opportunity for women to come out and party with a purpose,” says Kristin Celing, JLKD president. “Where else can you shop for unique items, spend time with the girls and support families in need right here in Chicago’s western suburbs.”

The event will be held on Sunday, March 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hilton Lisle/Naperville. Spring Fling includes a ladies luncheon, silent auction, wine pull, spring marketplace and raffles. Vendors at the spring marketplace represent a wide array of quality products and services including jewelry, clothing, home décor and more. This year’s vendors include The GoodFrog Candle Company, Bazor Designs, A Girl With a Cape, Desmond Brown Designs, PS Designs, and more!

Event tickets are $50. Ladies interested in attending can learn more and purchase event and raffle tickets at jlkd.org.

Additionally, folks can take part in the Spring Fling Raffle, just $25 each, 3 for $70 or 5 for $100. The grand prize winner will choose one of three vacation options: AMA Awards weekend, Napa Valley weekend or Key West.  Second prize is a Tory Burch bag and wallet, valued at $775. Third prize winner will take home a David Yurman bracelet, with a value of $475.

100 percent of the proceeds raised at Spring Fling will go directly to support essential community programs. Now in its 19th year, JLKD provides outreach services to organizations and individuals in Kane, DuPage, Will and Kendall Counties. Our vision is to train volunteers to improve the lives of children at risk in the community by promoting literacy, developing self-esteem and providing positive programming.

Spring Fling is made possible with the support of JLKD’s 2013-14 key sponsors: CTI, Inc.; Strategic Solutions, Inc.; Field Works, Inc.; and Sikich LLP.
