JLCU September Happenings…

JLCU at CU Pride Festival…
For the first time, JLCU participated in the CU Pride Festival on September 6.  It was a fun filled event with a petting zoo, parade, bands, and more.  JLCU member Ashley Morgan says, “At the Pride Festival this year, people were surprised that JLCU had a booth, but very happy that we came out and were participating in pride this year!  It was really great to hear this.”   Junior League is trying to reach out to more community groups and participating in events like CU Pride Festival is a great way to get our name out into other areas of the community.

CarX Crazy K…
This year’s CarX Crazy K was held on September 13, and this is the 4th time that JLCU was selected as an organization to receive proceeds.  Rebecca Guyette, JLCU’s Fund Development chair reported, “We made just shy of $1,000.  We are hoping for more participation next year.”  We are proud of this year’s JLCU team, who took part in the race.  Thank you, Sara Olson, Donica Flint, Emily Ochs and Katie Bourbeau!

Matzner Clinic Special Event…
Matzner Clinic, partnered with Chambanamoms.com, hosted an event on September 13, collecting over $300 in cash and supplies for JLCU League Locker.   Students who attended this event were offered a scoliosis screening, backpack weigh-in, and training on how to stretch and pack their own healthy lunch.  League Locker was grateful for the contribution to our warehouse of supplies for CU’s teachers.
