The Holly Club Ball
The spirit of giving defines the annual Holly Club Ball. A tradition in Joliet since 1892, the Ball serves as Holly Club’s major fundraiser. At this elegant event every December, nearly 200 members of the community regularly gather to share their commitment to neighbors in need.
We are grateful for the continued support of our generous community and invite others to become part of this spirit of charity. This year’s Holly Club Ball will be December 11, 2021 at the Renaissance Center in downtown Joliet.
Every spring since the 1940s, Holly Club has been hosting an annual Lawn Party to raise funds for and awareness of summer programs in Will County that serve women and children in need. This event, traditionally held in June, is a luncheon honoring our patronesses – former active members who continue to faithfully support Holly Club after they can no longer attend monthly meetings. A hallmark of Holly Club’s Lawn Party is a silent auction of garden-themed decorative accessories. As we emerged from pandemic protocols in 2021, we delayed our midyear fundraiser to August, toasting our 132 years in an evening affair on the rooftop of the Joliet Area Historical Museum.
