THE SUNSHINE STATE BALL is a celebration of everything that makes Florida the best place to live, work and raise a family, along with the volunteer work that strengthens communities. During Florida’s inauguration week, the Ball will host guests from around the Sunshine State, welcoming them to the Capital City to enjoy a black-tie dinner and live entertainment by Rodney Atkins. All proceeds support JLT’s mission of improving the lives of children and families.

PURPOSE

The Sunshine State Ball is a continuation of the JLT legacy, aiming to energize and inspire, as an example of effective community volunteerism for leaders across the Sunshine State.

The Junior League of Tallahassee has a proven track record of identifying unmet community needs, developing solutions and seeing them through to fruition. Since 1960, the JLT has served as an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The 100% volunteer organization has contributed more than $2,500,000 to the Tallahassee community.
