This year’s market will be held November 20-22, 2014 at the Lake Charles Civic Center. As always, our market couldn’t happen without our fabulous merchants – to those who are returning, THANKS, and for those who are new to our Market, you won’t be disappointed.

Community Impact


Impact Support


When non-profit agencies are limited in achieving their goals because of lack of manpower, this program provides a dedicated group of Junior League volunteers to work on a number of unrelated, short-term community projects. This committee is always looking for new ways to roll up their sleeves and get meaningful projects done…in a day! Find out more…

Branch Out & Grow


Providing grants to local educators and scholarships to high school seniors who show a passion for volunteerism.


Fostering Families


League members purchase, organize, and distribute personal care packages for children recently removed from their homes or newly placed in foster care.  The children remain nameless and faceless to the JLLC, but hold a special place in our hearts.


Healthy Choices


JLLC members strive to combat childhood obesity by empowering children to make healthy, nutritional choices.  The League's Healthy Choices Program is collaborating with Oak Park, Dolby and The Partnership for a Healthier SWLA to implement a six week Fitness and Nutrition program. 


Leadership Development


We are helping create a healthy and confident workforce.  The JLLC sponsored parental trainings at 2 local schools based on the "Leader in Me" curriculum which fosters leadership, character, and conflict resolution.


Liberty Belles


This is the League’s longest running community project. Members visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities a couple of times a year to sing and bring joy to residents.
