The Junior League of Greater Covington’s 22nd Annual Harvest Cup Polo Classic on Sunday, Oct. 21, the Northshore’s “Premier Fall Event,” boasts mouth-watering food, specialty beverages, amazing displays of equine athleticism, and more. Even better than the event itself, however, is the cause it supports.
For more than 40 years, the women of the Junior League of Greater Covington have been at the forefront of volunteer organizing and training. The Junior League developed and nurtured many successful community projects that are now independent organizations, including the YMCA for Western St. Tammany, Youth Service Bureau, and Northlake Nature Center.
So much of United Way’s and the Junior League’s work is interconnected throughout the Northshore, from our programs and partners to the extraordinary supporters who drive our missions forward. These ties were further strengthened this year thanks to the Junior League Little Black Dress Initiative, a creative fundraising effort raising awareness of local poverty. The group generously donated proceeds from the initiative to United Way, helping further our work to eradicate poverty in Southeast Louisiana.
United Way is proud to partner with the Junior League and support this grand celebration and opportunity to invest in the community. We hope to see you there!
