Since 2016, the Junior League of Grand Rapids has held an annual gala. The gala provides a platform to celebrate the achievements of the League’s community programs while inspiring guests to further our efforts through philanthropy. Each year the gala honors a sustaining member for her legacy of service to the League and the community. Past honorees include the late Deb Bailey, Judy Frey, Pat Waring, Louise “Punky” Edison, Susan K. Jones, and Diana Sieger. 

The Junior League of Grand Rapids is pleased to announce that longtime sustaining member Amy Knape has been named as the 2023 Gala Honoree. 

Amy is a dynamic, talented, and successful professional in our community. A Junior League member since 1998, Amy served as the 82nd President and has received many community and League accolades including the Sustainer of the Year award in 2016. In addition to graciously dedicating her time by serving on several boards and committees, Amy is a current member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals- West Michigan Chapter. Recognition for her positive impact on the community includes being awarded the PROOF Gold Award from Michigan Public Relations Society as well as being a 2017 West Michigan Woman Brilliance Award winner. While recognizing and thanking Amy for her accomplishments and influence, the Gala will provide a platform for the Junior League of Grand Rapids to showcase our work in the community in an effort to inspire guests to further our mission and efforts.

We look forward to celebrating with you on April 21st.
