Hinsdale Juniors Woman’s Club

By Hinsdale Magazine Staff

Roughly 200 west suburbanites attended “Platinum Unplugged,” the Hinsdale Junior Woman’s Club’s (HJWC) annual benefit, across four time-slots at Burdi Clothing in downtown Hinsdale on April 24. In order to comply with Coronavirus mitigations, the club limited attendance to 50 guests at a time inside the spacious store, which formerly served as home to Hartley’s Cycle Shoppe. Guests pre-registered for gift cards to sundry downtown stores and restaurants, which they procured at the “red carpet pre-party” event at Burdi Clothing. Ladies came attired in their full sartorial splendor, having waited patiently to dress up for a night out on the town. DJ Matt Roan supplied musical entertainment for attendees, who browsed the new store, while visiting with friends and neighbors in public in some cases for the first time in more than a year. Perhaps the most popular attraction for ladies was a “360 glam cam” that provided a unique twist on a photo booth. Proceeds from “Platinum Unplugged” supported a smattering of regional non-profit organizations that submitted grant requests to the HJWC in late 2020.
