FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  [February 5, 2010, Saint Paul, MN]  Slip on your favorite pair of jeans, pile on the “bling,” and join the Junior League of Saint Paul (JLSP) for Blue Jeans & Bling:  A Grown Up Play Date to Benefit Kids! 

Blue Jeans and Bling will take place on Saturday, February 27 beginning at 7:00 pm at the Minnesota Children’s Museum. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the Junior League of Saint Paul’s efforts to improve the Saint Paul community.  The public is invited to join us for an evening that features a silent and live auction, games, and dancing. Guests are asked to dress in blue jeans and anything and everything that sparkles.  Tickets can be purchased online for $50 at www.jlsp.org/bling.     

"For over 90 years, the Junior League of Saint Paul has lead initiatives to improve the well being of women and children in our community," said Junior League President Christine M. Sand. "We are able to continue our legacy of improving the lives of those in our community because of the support we receive from our fundraising events such as Blue Jeans and Bling.”

The Junior League of Saint Paul strives to strengthen our community by developing innovative projects and thousands of volunteer hours through our dedicated membership. JLSP's current initiative, Building Bonds through Reading and Play, helps parents and caregivers connect with children in ways that will create long-term positive relationships. JLSP’s research finds that a bond between a caregiver and a child improves the relationship and offers developmental growth leading to academic success for the child. That bond can be established in numerous ways.  JLSP seeks to foster these bonds through sponsored family reading and game nights at Saint Paul Recreation Centers.
