Cocktails is the League’s largest fundraiser and is essential to our efforts to create a better community for all. In 2016, JLJC partnered with the ETSU Prescription Drug Abuse and Misuse Working Group, an organization currently studying Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), which is affecting our community in record numbers. In the past 2 years, we have donated $35,000 to help fund the development and staffing of an electronic NAS Registry of Data. This registry is helping to establish standards of care for children born with NAS and increase the awareness and understanding of long term effects. This year’s funding will continue the League’s community impact through direct funding to agencies, leadership development, and over 500 hours of volunteer assistance to health initiatives.
