Philanthropy. Social. Hands-on. 

Celebrating 20 years of charitable giving and volunteering in Elmhurst!

EJWC is philanthropic in nature, but it has a social aspect as well. The goal of the Club is to assist other charities through fundraising efforts in addition to hands-on work. Over the years we have hosted major fundraisers such as the Elmhurst Kitchen Expedition and Tickled Pink. These two events have provided a core of funds allowing us to financially assist other organizations in need of our help. For more information on our past endeavors, check out our Gallery.

Join us this year for the Elmhurst Kitchen Expedition (EKE) on April 29, 2018. On this Sunday afternoon, we will visit seven homes in Elmhurst and view the unique layout and interesting gadgets they have incorporated into their kitchens. Proceeds from EKE will be donated to the Synapse House in Elmhurst.

Synapse House is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to  ENGAGE, EMPOWER and  EMPLOY individuals that are  affected by brain injury and stroke.  Located at 561 N. York St. in Elmhurst, the Synapse House bakery is open to the public to purchase their delicious baked goods.  For more information visit
