SAVE THE DATE – The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) proudly announces BIG NIGHT OUT: Big Night, Big Causes, Big Impact, which will be held on Friday, March 27, 2015 at Pepe Infiniti in White Plains, NY. The evening festivities will include a cocktail reception, dinner, silent auction and musical entertainment. As one of the JLCW’s primary fundraisers,BIG NIGHT OUT will provide essential financial support for the JLCW’s educational and charitable projects. Over the past 67 years, the JLCW has been committed to promoting volunteerism; developing the potential of women; and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Big Night Out will celebrate the launch and success of the JLCW Westchester County Diaper Bank, an effort in conjunction with the Westchester County Government to end the silent epidemic of diaper deprivation. “Diapers are a basic need for children – as essential as food and shelter,” said County Executive Robert P. Astorino. “I want to thank the Junior League of Central Westchester for this tremendous partnership. Along with the county’s Department of Social Services (DSS), together we are working to keep babies clean, safe and healthy.”

Big Night Out will also honor The Acceleration Project (TAP) and its co-founders, Lisa Tretler (a JLCW sustainer member) and Jane Veron for sharing in its commitment to tapping the potential of women. Their impact in the local community is evident through their recent “Buy Local Campaign” in conjunction with the Scarsdale Chamber of Commerce. “TAP and the JLCW care greatly about tapping the potential of women and directing their talents for the betterment of the community,” said TAP co-founders Tretler and Veron. “We are thrilled to be honored by an organization so closely aligned with our mission and values.”

Big Night Out is open to the public and will be attended by JLCW members and other prominent members of the community. The evening will include cocktails, dinner and a silent auction, including exciting one-of-a-kind items like vacation getaways, tickets to sporting events and Broadway shows. All proceeds from the event will support the JLCW’s initiatives and the Westchester County Diaper Bank.

The JLCW is grateful to all of its 2015 sponsors, particularly its Crown Jewel Sponsors, Pepe Infiniti, the host of Big Night Out, and Morgan Stanley, a founding sponsor of the JLCW Westchester County Diaper Bank.

“We are so thrilled to celebrate the success of the JLCW Westchester County Diaper Bank at Big Night Out,” said Nikki Hahn, President of the Junior League of Central Westchester. “We also couldn’t be happier to be honoring TAP and its co-founders Lisa Tretler and Jane Veron, both of whom share in the JLCW’s commitment to helping improve the local community as well as developing the potential of women. Funds raised at Big Night Out will help further many of these important causes.”
