you all know how i love to shop, right!? well today i'm here to tell you all about one special shopping event that is close to my heart, holiday mart! as a member of the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri i'm on the holiday mart retail committee (so fitting right!?). that's right, i got to help pick the retailers that would show at our biggest fundraiser. i can tell you it will be an amazing weekend full of wonderful vendors selling goods ranging from food, clothing, beauty, home decor, to health and wellness. holiday mart will be october 16th - 19th at bartle hall. there's literally something for everyone on your list!
what i love about holiday mart is that we are able to raise about $500,000 from the ticket sales alone and about 85% (that's a ton of $) is reinvested into kansas city charities. the first holiday mart was in 1987 and since then it has raised close to $9 million for the kc community and the projects that support the Junior League's mission of promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving our community. each year holiday mart brings in more than 22,000 shoppers - pretty amazing right!?
i was pretty stoked when they asked if i wanted to giveaway 3 sets of 2 single day tickets! heck yes!! so if you win, you'll have a ticket for your friend to go with you! it's such a great event, you are going to love it! i went last year for the first time and fell in love with everything about it. the food, drinks, vendors, staff, and goodies. i think i knocked out like all of my holiday shopping in one day. i'm excited to see muchana (i can't wait to see what hats and scarfs they bring to the show), lily dawson (i met her last year and fell in love with her jewels), dillard's (cool), and cherry republic (i literally could eat a bag of these sour cherries in one sitting). what retailer are you excited to shop?
