Junior League of Tulsa Awards $10,000 in Scholarships, Jill Donovan to Speak

TULSA, OKLA. – On February 10, 2017, The Junior League of Tulsa, Inc. (JLT) will host its fifth annual Mentorship Luncheon at the Mayo Hotel, celebrating the impact of mentorship and scholarship in developing outstanding women leaders. The Luncheon begins at noon, with check-in beginning at 11:30 a.m.

JLT is thrilled that the event will feature keynote speaker Jill Donovan, Creator and Owner of Rustic Cuff. In three short years, Donovan’s grassroots beginning turned into a booming business, with celebrities such as Miranda Lambert, Giuliana Rancic, and Kristin Chenoweth sporting her designs. Known for her big heart and generous spirit, Donovan’s favorite thing is to inspire these traits in others. This mission aligns with one of JLT’s key missions: to develop the potential of women.

The Mentorship Luncheon is a mission-based endeavor for JLT. According to Mentorship Luncheon Committee Chair Kristyn Cegielski, “the Luncheon allows us to live our JLT mission of developing women in our communities through programming AND scholarship. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to be inspired by the hard work of our scholarship recipients and celebrate your mentor or mentee.”

The Mentorship Luncheon also marks an opportunity for The Junior League of Tulsa to honor and recognize its annual scholarship recipients. The League is proud to award two Founders’ Scholarships to graduating high school women who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to academics and voluntarism and two Mrs. W. Albert Cook Scholarships to nontraditional students—women returning to their studies after an absence, or just beginning their higher education—based primarily on financial need and a commitment to completing a degree. The proceeds from the luncheon will help JLT fund $10,000 towards its future scholarship program and support the mission of training and developing women leaders and highly effective League volunteers.

Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for the Mentorship Luncheon are still available. Tickets are $65 for an individual, or $120 for a pair. For more information, please visit www.jltulsa.org.
