American Girl Fashion Show Fundraiser in Dunwoody on November 8 benefiting Foster Care.

American Girl Tea Party

The Junior League of Gwinnett and North Fulton (JLGNF) is holding its annual American Girl fashion show fundraisers at a private club in Dunwoody on Nov. 8, after four years of producing the show in Gwinnett. Two shows will be held in a traditional tea party format, while a new pajama and pizza party format will be offered at the evening show. Proceeds will help children’s charities, especially those supporting foster children.
  • The JLGNF fashion shows are the only ones licensed by American Girl for the state of Georgia.

  • The two-hour shows are a special event for parents and daughters, or grandmothers and granddaughters. A professional photographer will be available for photos.

  • Shows at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. will be tea parties with light refreshments. Girls and their dolls should wear pajamas to the 4:30 show.

  • Guests do not have to bring an American Girl or wear American Girl clothing.

  • Girls attending the show can guest model and stroll the catwalk with their favorite doll, for an additional fee.

  • Each show will include refreshments, party favors and door prizes.

  • There will be raffles for dolls, accessories and toys from the various American Girl brands.

  • Girl Scout troops can get a significant discount for purchasing a table of 10 at the 10 a.m. show.

  • Exclusive souvenirs will be offered, including the doll “treat seats” used at American Girl cafes.
Both show formats provide an educational look at how and why clothing styles have changed throughout the generations. American Girl is a company dedicated to teaching history and celebrating girls through its books, toys and educational products. Great seats are still available, so start your holiday memories now, while supporting foster children.

Part of each ticket is tax deductible. Tickets for this year’s fashion shows range from $30 to $50, and can be purchased online by visiting Call Catherine Lotti at 770-840-0493 with questions.
