In 2016 the Junior League of Atlanta (JLA) celebrated 100 years of making an impact in Atlanta’s communities. The organization’s legacy began with a group of only 45 women who in 1916 strategically linked vision, social capital, and action to address community challenges. While these women did not set out to change the world, they significantly improved the lives of women and children in Atlanta by tackling important social issues.
Today, the organization is nearly 3,500 women strong and focused more than ever on tackling community issues that face Atlanta – including generational poverty, commercial sexual exploitation/human trafficking and early childhood education. Last October they celebrated their milestone birthday with a Centennial Gala, ‘Party Of The Century’ at The Atlanta History Center. Event Rentals Unlimited was honored to be a part of this celebration – special thanks to Soiree Catering & Events. Contributing the following event inventory we helped to bring the committee’s vision together for one spectacular event: Gold Chiavari chairs, drapery, Hampton and Memphis patterned china, Windsor flatware, Vision glassware, barware, catering equipment and catering service pieces. Enjoy some of our favorite photos from that night taken by KO Photography.
