Join us as we celebrate everything that makes Florida the best place to live, work, and raise a family.

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 TALENT live in concert. All proceeds support JLT’s  mission of improving the lives of children and families.


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.

Announcing this year’s entertainment

Michael Cohen

Michael Cohen will make an appearance LIVE from the cell block in a tell-all story of friendship, love, and betrayal. Legend’s debut album, Get Lifted, was released in December of 2004 through Columbia Records. This album spawned the artist’s first hit single, “Ordinary People,” and scored Legend multiple Grammy Awards in 2006, including Best R&B Album, Best New Artist and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Legend’s highly acclaimed fourth and most current studio album Love In the Future, features “All of Me,” Legend’s highest selling and charting song to date, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on both Mainstream Top 40 and Rhythmic charts.
