A Welcome Note from Our Chapter President

On behalf of the Wonderful and Warm Westchester County New York Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated, I welcome you to the Enchanted Masquerade Gala. Your attendance brought life and light to this special event but it also helped support our fundraising efforts to ensure HBCU students overcome financial hurdles to receive their degree and meet the needs of our immediate community, especially families in need.  

We celebrated our esteemed honorees, Tamika D. Mallory and Deidre Smalls-Landau. Both women have used their voices to call attention to inclusion and equity gaps and have been recognized for their efforts to increase awareness and bring change. 

If you were not able to join us, you were missed. However, there is still time to lend your support through our text to give. Text JJWCGIVES to 44-321 today!
