Junior League of Fort Worth Kicks Off 90th Year

Written by FWD501cReporter

The Junior League of Fort Worth (JLFW) is celebrating the organization’s 90th year. The JLFW is the 10th largest League in the world, and a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International.

The 2019 – 2020 JLFW President is Ashley Freer and is a long-time member of the Junior League who brings nearly 20 years of experience as a marketing professional and local businesswoman to the League. She is a principal at Fort Worth’s Balcom Agency, where she leads strategy and heads a group of account service team members

“For 90 years now, the women of the Junior League of Fort Worth have sparked possibility in our community, volunteering their time to lead and unite over community service. That has been our past, it is our present and it will be our future,” says Freer. “We have embraced the theme ‘Spark Possibility’ internally for 2019-2020 because we honor what has been built by our membership in the past – from Historic Fort Worth to Mayfest to The Parenting Center – while also recognizing that there is work to be done.”

During the JLFW’s 90th year, $490,000 has been allocated to distribute to area nonprofits within five Impact Areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Health & Nutrition, Life Readiness and Supports Fort Worth. Organizations receiving funding 2019-2020 are:
