Christmas Celebration Honoring The Friends of Charity League

On Tuesday, December 13th, The Charity League of Atlantic County honored the hard work and dedication of The Friends of Charity League with a Christmas Luncheon at The Ram’s Head Inn in Absecon. The Friends of Charity League are 25 volunteers who each year support in sewing the famous Christmas pins. The organization’s main fundraiser, each member is required to complete 60 pins. But for The Friends of Charity League, making the sequined pins is a labor of love. These women volunteer their time and master sewing skills throughout the year as a resource to the organization.
Every year The Charity League of Atlantic County raises over $150,000 for Atlantic County non-profits that support women and children. The Charity League has become synonymous with beautifully sequined Christmas pins, tree skirts, table runners and stockings. This year Charity League members and The Friends of Charity made approximately 6,400 green holly leaf pins, all of which will were sold exclusively at The Christmas Mart in November.
