The Mt. Lebanon Junior Women’s Club Announces Their 2019 Gala Event
“Color Your World – Every Child is a Story Yet to be Told”

Mt. Lebanon, January 31, 2019—Mt. Lebanon Junior Women’s Club (MLJWC) announced today that it will hold its 22 nd
annual gala on March 30, 2019. The gala will highlight the club’s major grant beneficiary, Jeremiah’s Place, which will
also celebrate their fifth anniversary at the event.
The gala will be held at The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh at 6pm. The brightly colored evening will be filled with
entertainment, silent auctions, wine and gift card pulls, and – of course – fun! Guests will be treated to hors d’oeuvres and
a sit-down dinner by Rania’s Catering along with three hours of complimentary wine and beer. A portion of the proceeds
raised that night will benefit Jeremiah’s Place.
“This year we are honored to partner with Jeremiah's Place to celebrate five years of service to families in crisis. As many
of us are mothers, aunts, and caregivers to small children, we can't imagine what we would do during a crisis if there were
not a safe place to send our children. The passion displayed by those involved with Jeremiah's place has inspired our
group to come together to raise funds and awareness for this wonderful group. It is my hope that the monies raised will
help to continue their mission on for many years to come.”, Lori Keener, President, MLJWC.
The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is located at 10 Children’s Way, Pittsburgh (North S), PA 15212 . Black Tie-
optional dress. Tickets can be purchased online via the MLJWC website at:
