Even with the forecast of rain, the Junior League of Bronxville hosted yet another successful Trails to Treasures event raising $50,000. The occasional sprinkles did not deter the over 250 attendees from coming out to support the League’s annual Spring fundraiser. The JLB’s Trails to Treasures shopping event has become an annual tradition for most shoppers and their friends. This year was no different and included new faces shopping for the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
With almost 50, unique vendors that sold a variety of wares including personalized stationary, costume jewelry, fashionable handbags, resort wear, alpaca capes and fine jewelry. Fewer vendors than previous years set the tone for a more intimate shopping experience in six beautiful Bronxville homes. Including one magnificent home currently on the market for $4,375,000. Shoppers were able to take in the details of each home as well as the merchandise. “This year's event showcased exciting local vendors in some fantastic Bronxville homes. The JLB would like to thank not only attendees, but the gracious homeowners who opened their houses for such a worthy event. Proceeds from Trails to Treasures help support our outreach and training programs that promote our mission of developing the potential of women and our vision of stamping out hunger in Southern Westchester.” Said Amy Korb, JLB President.
