FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – It was "A Night to Sparkle" at the court house Saturday night as the Junior League of Fort Wayne celebrated 70 years of service.

"A Night to Sparkle" fundraiser featured a silent and live auction and music from the West Central Quartet.

JLFW promotes volunteerism and bettering the lives of women and children through service. The women's organization has contributed more than $1 million to the Fort Wayne community over the last 70-years, and hopes to raise $20,000 at the event.

“Those funds will go directly to each of our projects. Currently we're working with the Women's Independence Project, promoting women's self-sufficiency, as well as "Kids in the Kitchen" which is a national Junior League project,” said Bliss Cook, event chairperson with JLFW.

All proceeds will go towards educational and charitable projects. JLFW’s vision is to be the leading force in building a better community.
