Out of an abundance of caution, the  Executive Committee of the Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc.’s Board of Directors made the very difficult decision to cancel The Junior League of Philadelphia’s Spring Gala on Friday, March 20 due to the COVID-19 virus.

The League is offering one of two options regarding your ticket purchase. Please review these options carefully and email focusfundraising@jlphiladelphia.org by Tuesday, March 31 with your decision:

  1. We are offering a full refund on your ticket purchase(s). Ticket refunds must be requested. If you would like to receive a full refund, please email focusfundraising@jlphiladelphia.org by Tuesday, March 31. We will attempt to refund the credit card you used to purchase your ticket(s). If there are any issues with processing your refund, we will contact you directly. Please note that if you request a refund, you will subsequently lose the Ways and Means credit applied with your ticket purchase(s).

  2. If you would like your ticket purchase to be treated as a donation to The Junior League of Philadelphia, please email focusfundraising@jlphiladelphia.org by Tuesday, March 31.Your tax-deductible donation will benefit projects and programs furthering The Junior League of Philadelphia’s mission as an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Please be advised that we will be handling multiple requests for refunds. We appreciate your patience as we work through each request.

The silent auction will still open midnight on Friday, March 20 and will now close at midnight on Monday, March 23. You can bid at handbid.com or by downloading the app. Winning bidders will have their items shipped to them. You can preview the auction before it opens starting this Monday, March 18.
