The Junior League of Elizabeth-Plainfield (JLEP) has announced that area residents will have an opportunity to win the newest American Girl, "Josefina Montoya," at Westfield’s FestiFall on Sunday, September 21.

Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the day and the winner chosen that evening. Participants need not be present to win. The winner will be notified on Monday, October 22.

The raffle is being held in conjunction with the JLEP’s second annual American Girls Fashion Show, to be held on Saturday and Sunday, November 8 and 9, at Union Catholic Regional High School in Scotch Plains. Show times are Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
