The JLG will be honoring tradition for the holidays with its annual fundraiser, The Enchanted Forest. This year The Enchanted Forest is live and in-person! The three-day event takes place from Friday, November 18, 2022, to Saturday, November 20, 2022, at Arch Street Greenwich Teen Center. This event is the Junior League of Greenwich’s signature fundraiser to support all of our community projects and the League’s mission throughout the year. The event features (1) decorated trees and gingerbread houses to be auctioned, (2) children’s and family events, and (3) a fabulous Friday Night Cocktail Party.
DECORATED TREES AND GINGERBREAD HOUSES DISPLAY
Festival of Trees – exclusive, individually designed trees are decorated by local florists, designers, retail locations, and individual contributors. Visitors may bid on trees by silent auction all weekend.
Gingerbread House Display – these confectionery masterpieces are a must-see every year with top bakeries, restaurants, country clubs, schools, and community organizations showing off their creative talent. Visitors can bid on gingerbread houses by silent auction all weekend.
THE CHILDREN’S GIVING SHOP
The Children’s Giving Shop at The Enchanted Forest is a child-centered area where children can shop independently for holiday gifts.
Staffed and stocked by JLG members, the children will find a wide assortment of reasonably priced gifts for family members, friends, and teachers. The shop is filled with picture frames, candles, note cards, toys, sports items, games, gardening items, jewelry, and more!
Every child will find the perfect gift for their shopping list at The Children’s Giving Shop. Volunteers and JLG members assist children with their shopping and wrap all of the presents so the gifts remain a surprise for the recipients. The Children’s Giving Shop is a very memorable and fun experience for both the children and volunteers who participate!
FRIDAY NIGHT – Cocktail Party
The Enchanted Forest’s Friday Night Cocktail party is on November 18, 2022. This is a semi-formal cocktail party with a live auction, shopping, and fantastic food and drinks to be enjoyed by all!
