n behalf of The Junior League of Austin (JLA), I welcome you to the 2018 A Christmas Affair (ACA). This five-day event is JLA’s largest fundraiser and is completely planned and executed by JLA volunteers. Thank you to our 89 volunteers who have spent countless hours making this annual event possible. The funds raised through A Christmas Affair allow The Junior League of Austin to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to the Austin community. Additionally, our members donate their time, contributing over 160,000 volunteer hours each year. ACA helps us achieve our mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The Junior League supports the Austin community through our signature programs and in partnership with nonprofits throughout the community. Through the JLA’s Coats for Kids (CFK) program we will distribute over 30,000 coats, and with our FIT - Food in Tummies program, we will deliver more than 47,000 backpacks filled with food to elementary schools in Del Valle ISD this year. You can read about how we plan to expand KICS - Kids in Cool Shoes, JLA’s newest signature program on page 46. We also partner with over 30 local nonprofits to provide funds and volunteers in support of their specific missions.

For over 20 years, my husband Greg and I have enjoyed dressing up each year and attending the preview party. For 19 years, my kids growing up have been photo documented with the same Santa at the ACA Breakfast with Santa. Santa hasn’t aged a day, but those crying, red-faced babies have turned into beautiful and thoughtful young adults. Adults who look forward to catching up with Santa each year and giving back to the community themselves. ACA is a unique opportunity to shop and celebrate the season while supporting our community. The funds raised through ACA provide financial support for our non-profit community partners along with volunteer and training opportunities for our members and the community. Highlights include Coats for Kids, FIT - Food in Tummies, Con Mi MADRE, KICS - Kids in Cool Shoes as well as over 30 more community partners. You may be wondering what it means to be a Sustaining member

Bringing A Christmas Affair to Life


ver 25,000 people kick off the holiday season with The Junior League of Austin (JLA) at the annual A Christmas Affair (ACA) event, but for the 89 volunteers who work on the JLA’s ACA Committee to put this event on, the holiday spirit lasts all year long. The League as a whole works together to bring ACA to life whether volunteers are on the committee or outside of the committee.

there on out it’s finishing touches and print deadlines,” says Crawford. “We get busy early!” There are monthly meetings for the committees to stay in touch and work together. Crawford predicts the average ACA Committee member puts in 40 hours a month leading up to the event in November. Crawford says, “It is exhiliterating to finally see everything fall into place. For me that’s exciting because this theme has been in my head for a long time, and to be able to work with other people and have them bring it to life in ways that I wouldn’t have been able to do by myself is incredible.”

Planning for the event starts over a year in advance, and is lead by the A Christmas Affair Chair. This year the ACA chair is Lyndsey Crawford. Crawford started planning as far back as January 2017. By that October she had decided on the Joyeux Noël theme and completed a full style guide for the event. In March of 2018, the rest of Crawford’s volunteers got to work. There are 16 committees that work to make the event go off without a hitch. “We try to have have everything mostly wrapped up for ACA by the end of July. From

is the Decorations Subcommittee. Behind the glitz and the glam of the ornaments, garlands, trees and decorations is this creative team of volunteers that takes the theme set forth by the ACA Chair and makes it a reality. The Decorations Subcommittee begins its work over a year in advance. In January, they visit Dallas Market to purchase decorations needed to fit their vision. Once all of the decorations have been purchased, the committee works diligently to manage delivery receivables, wire ornaments, build

ACA Decorations Co-Chair Blair Nelson says, “When large orders of decorations such as ornaments for the main tree, trees and other various decorations arrive from market, our committee gets together and unpacks everything. Then we wrap everything back and label it by color, so when all the boxes arrive at the Palmer Events Center during ACA, we know where each box will go.” The Decorations Subcommittee is usually tight lipped about their plans, but if you’re looking for a teaser as to what to expect from decorations this year, Nelson shares, “Surprisingly, there are not a lot of Eiffel Towers. We want to highlight everyone’s favorite things about France – not just Paris.”

Something you might not realize is that every decoration you see out at A Christmas Affair is available for purchase. You can help The Junior League of Austin by purchasing decorations before, during and after market. It’s all up for grabs, including the ornaments, garlands, centerpieces and maybe even a full tree! The official decorations re-sale will take place at JLA Headquarters, located at 5416 Parkcrest Drive, Suite 100, from November 30 through December 2, where you can pick up decorations you’ve already purchased or do any last minute holiday shopping. A Christmas Affair will take place at Palmer Events Center November 14-18. To purchase market day and event tickets visit jlaustin.org. The Junior League of Austin  15

Letter from the Chair

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 43rd annual Junior League of Austin (JLA) A Christmas Affair, Joyeux Noël. Join us as we shop, play and work hard to make a positive impact on the Austin community. This year, A Christmas Affair (ACA) will take you back to turn-of-the-century France for a vintage celebration of the season. We find ourselves in an era marked by great innovation, creativity and international community – the first Metro lines open in Paris, the birth of Art Nouveau, the Paris Exhibition of 1900 and the first time the summer Olympic Games are held outside of Greece. The country is in a period known as “La Belle Époque” (beautiful era), a time of optimism, elegance and progress. Walk with us down the bustling city streets, wonder at the majesty of the Tour Eiffel and maybe even take a ride on a hot air balloon… The turn of the century was also an exciting time for The Junior League. Our first charter was granted in New York City when founder Mary Harriman noticed a need in her city and felt “a responsibility for making an important contribution to the community.” The Junior League was brought to life, and over 100 years later, The Junior League of Austin continues this tradition of making an important contribution.

During this year’s A Christmas Affair we will honor the vision of our founder and showcase the League’s 30 community projects and signature programs. Come by the Pont des Arts and purchase a “tribute lock” to hang on the bridge in honor of one of our community projects or a volunteer who has inspired you. Show your support of the League’s signature program, Coats for Kids (CFK), on Saturday, November 17, as we kick off our coat drive at the Cirque de Demain. Through children’s events, parties and shopping the 200 plus merchants, the 2018 A Christmas Affair has something for everyone, and we hope you enjoy the celebration. To my committee: I have seen the countless hours, the enormous creativity and the heart you have put into A Christmas Affair. Your commitment to making a difference is inspiring. Thank you for taking this journey alongside me. To our sponsors: with your generous financial support The Junior League of Austin is able to bring our vision alive year after year and raise over $700,000 for the Austin community. Thank you for your partnership. To our guests: funds from ticket purchases and participation in our auctions and raffle go directly to help improve our community. We could not do any of this without your support. It is my hope that you will enjoy A Christmas Affair as much as I do. Together we can “make an important contribution to our community” this year and for many years to come. Joyeux Noël!

A Sneak Peek Inside the Community Impact Center By: Keri Bollman


he Junior League of Austin (JLA) is currently under construction on its new headquarters – the Community Impact Center (CIC). Designed by Austin-based architecture firm STG Design, the CIC will feature a modern Hill Country design and a layout that will serve both the JLA and the community. While many people have seen the renderings for the new buildings, only a handful of dedicated stakeholders have seen the plans for inside. In the pages that follow we’ll take you inside the new headquarters and offer up a sneak peek of the new facility.

FIRST FLOOR The lower level of the Community Impact Center was designed to be used by both The Junior League of Austin as well as the community. It will be used for internal events as well as community events, fundraisers and more. The League will also rent out spaces within the CIC to help generate revenue.

The signature programs room is the first thing visitors see. It has large windows, so everyone who enters the building will be able to see the work of FIT Food in Tummies and KICS - Kids in Cool Shoes being done inside. It was designed specifically to service these programs, so it features a laundry room that will be used to wash FIT bags as well as an adjacent loading dock to facilitate the stocking of pantry items and shoes.

The community event room is a multi-function banquet and auditorium space that can be used for JLA or community events, from focus groups and meetings to galas or weddings. “It was designed to serve the entire community,” says Jamille Ruebsahm, Capital Campaign Coordinator. The community room has a seated capacity of 440, and it can be utilized as one big room or split into three smaller rooms, depending on the need. The room will feature audiovisual capabilities for meetings and events. Adjacent to the room is a prep area to facilitate catering.



Bordering the community room is an outdoor deck that overlooks The Lawn. The Lawn is an outdoor space nestled under a canopy of live oak trees. The property itself backs up to the greenbelt and will feature a nature trail with a pollinator garden and bat houses to help with the City of Austin’s desire to bring more wildlife to the grounds as a habitat steward.

Through member surveys and interviews, the committee learned that many sustaining members – women who have reached the age limit for Active membership – felt that they didn’t have a space to congregate at the current JLA Headquarters.


The upper level features various dedicated offices for JLA staff and volunteers as well as breakout spaces and meeting rooms. Additionally, there will be dedicated areas for Coats for Kids and the League’s fundraising events.

The new sustainer lounge will showcase Hill Country views and will feature a kitchenette, dining area and a lounge with a television. The space was designed to create a welcoming space that will help foster relationships between all members.

Based on member feedback, the CIC was designed with storage space. It will also feature a workroom with ample room for production of new items needed for programs.


The Community Impact Center is available to rent for community groups and events, and is already booking for 2019. For information, please email cicevents@jlaustin.org.

SECOND FLOOR The upper level was designed for internal use by the JLA, including office support. The CIC Committee and architects spent countless hours interviewing leadership and members to identify the most desired features and how to make best use of the space.

What’s Next for KICS? The Junior League of Austin promotes Kids in Cool Shoes - KICS from a pilot to signature program. By: Keri Bollman


ast year, The Junior League of Austin (JLA) piloted KICS – Kids in Cool Shoes (KICS), a program that aims to outfit elementary age kids in new sneakers. The pilot was an enormous success, and last spring the JLA was able to donate over 650 pairs of sneakers to students at Guerrero-Thompson Elementary School in North Austin. With the success of the pilot, the JLA decided to expand the program, transforming it from a special project led by League volunteers Courtney Clark and Laura Robinson, to a signature program. KICS is now an official JLA program and has its own committee composed of

eleven dedicated volunteers. They are currently focused on garnering community sponsorships, engaging volunteers, gathering donations and spreading the word about the program. This year, KICS chair Courtney Clark and her committee are planning to expand KICS to other high-need schools and daycares. They plan to do this through a model that hasn’t been tried before by the JLA. The proposed model allows for an organization, business or individual to sponsor a KICS school by donating money for the purchase of shoes. They will then be invited to participate in distribution day, which gives them

and their employees the opportunity to see first hand the dollars they have donated. “We wanted to provide a new, unique way for the community to see and experience what the League does, and see how their dollars are being put to work,” says Clark. Clark said she feels that this may serve to spark interest in joining the League amongst non-JLA member volunteers and will help to diversify membership as well. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring a KICS school or daycare, please contact KICS@jlaustin.org.
