Dancing Jingled Elves raising money to help women in SWFL after Ian

Wink News, December 6, 2022

A group of women called the Jingled Elves sang and danced their way through Naples Tuesday night to help other women and children across Collier County.

The Jingled Elves exceeded their goal of raising six figures with the help of their 80 sponsors.   Caroling for a cause with Santa’s little helpers, the Elves took their song and dance all over town.

“We’ve been practicing, but it’s very interesting to see women who are on the dark side of 30 doing a flash mob, but we end up having a good time,” board member Donna Issenmann said.

The group of dancing women helps other women get back on their feet.  Six different charities will get a substantial gift from the Jingled Elves.

Jingled Elves Made a Special Christmas Appearance at the Village Shops!

December 7, 2022

Last night the Jingled Elves joined together for a night of fun and fundraising at their annual Trolley Tour, making The Village Shops a stop along the way. When the clock hit 7:00pm, four trolleys full of women unloaded, ready to rock around the Christmas tree!

Surrounding the tree was a sea of red, as the ladies in matching shirts, Santa hats, reindeer antlers, and light up necklaces got into formation. The music began and so did the festive fun! Everyone was dancin’ merrily as the ladies performed choreographed routines for friends and family. There were feet tapping, clapping, and a whole lot of laughing…all the signs of true holiday happiness, thanks to this incredible group!

Annual trolley tour delivers holiday cheer

December 1, 2022

Jingled Elves are coming to Mercato on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and will do their first “flash mob” of the evening, dancing on the green, in what has become their Christmas tradition.

“It’s fun. There’s a lot of camaraderie,” said Donna Issenmann, president and founder of Jingle Elves, “and we do something good for other people.”

Their mission is to help women and children. Each year the women who are participants and the sponsors are welcome to nominate their charities, then they vote on them. “It’s a democracy, so to speak,” said Issenmann. This year the charities will be Baby Basics, Laces of Love, Shelter for Abused Women and Children, Pace Center for Girls and Youth Haven.

When Hurricane Ian hit in September they decided they would help some group immediately when people needed assistance the most. The Community Foundation suggested the Hunger & Homeless Coalition. They voted and within days, cut a check for the coalition for $15,000.
