NEW YORK - eTradeWire -- The New York Junior League (NYJL) held its 71st Annual Winter Ball, a black-tie event and the organization's largest fundraiser, on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at Cipriani South Street, one of Manhattan's newest and most glamorous event spaces.  This year's sold-out Winter Ball broke historical attendance records, raising over $600,000 and counting, thanks to the support of generous donors through ticket purchases, corporate sponsorships, individual donations, and a silent and live auction.

During Winter Ball, the NYJL honored recipients of the organization's highest honors, the Outstanding Sustainer and Outstanding Volunteer awards, reserved for those women who exemplify a superior standard of excellence in volunteerism.  The 2023 Outstanding Sustainers are Barbara Etzel and Marion S. Hedges and the Outstanding Volunteers are Blythe Winchester Brock, Marie T. Finan, Andrea Theresa McDermott, Christina Bott Murphy, and Contessa Officer.

Global Flagship, and a stay at the luxurious Four Seasons Ocean Club resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

"The NYJL has made a crucial impact on the New York City community as the city continues to feel the effects of the ongoing socioeconomic crisis, with our Outstanding Sustainers and Outstanding Volunteers serving as prime examples of our work.  We are so grateful to our generous sponsors and donors for ensuring that this year's Winter Ball was the most successful to date so we can continue to serve our city," said NYJL President Serra Eken.
