Apple Annie began in 1971, when the Huntsville Grace Club Auxiliary was looking for fundraising ideas, and met with the Scottsboro and Florence Civic Clubs. That’s when the Grace Club first heard about Apple Annie, named after the 1933 movie Lady for a Day, whose main character was a street peddler in New York City named Apple Annie. The Grace Club became the Junior League of Huntsville when they joined the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) in 1975.
Over 50 years later, Apple Annie continues as our League’s longest running fundraiser. This year Apple Annie Day is October 21st, 2023 with residential deliveries on October 21st and business deliveries on October 23rd. Apple Annie sales directly support our mission, including our community programs like Butterfly Project and Project Impact. Proceeds also fund leadership training and development for our members and community grants for local nonprofit partners and agencies.
