The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri: women building better communities.
According to the history channel, every February 14, across the United States and in other places around the world, approximately 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent, more than 35 million heart shaped boxes of candy are sold, and more than 220 million roses are produced.
Love can be shown in a hundred different ways for loved ones, friends, causes, and even volunteer groups like the League. This year several women who are part of the League’s Marketing Council were asked why they love the League and they said:
“I love the League, because it challenges me. It makes me grow.” – Lori Konomos
“I really love all the relationships I’ve made and the people I get to work with – people I may not have normally had the chance to meet.” – Katie Minnis
“I love the League, not just for the friends I’ve made but also for all the training and volunteer opportunities that I never even knew existed.” – Ash Parulekar
“There’s just something about our League – I can’t help but love it! It’s invigorating to be surrounded by so many like-minded women who want to make a difference in our community. The amount of talent and passion our members have is inspiring. The League challenges me to be my best self and I love that.” – Courtney Karr
Love is hard to find and should be celebrated.
Celebrate your love for the League at this year’s Take Five, which will be at Studio Dan Meiners at 2500 West Pennway Street in downtown Kansas City, Missouri on Friday, March 3rd. Enter to win prize packs and general admission tickets are still available and the fun will continue afterwards at Hotel Sorella.
And of course – Happy Valentine’s Day! May your February 14th be full of love, fun and all-around joy.
