i know it may seem early to be talking about the holidays but year after year i have good intentions of shopping for christmas presents early and then get caught up and am frantically running around the week before or paying extra for priority shipping online. this year i am determined not to let that happen and am getting a head start at the holiday mart here in kansas city. the holiday mart is the largest fundraiser of the year for the junior league of kansas city, bringing in more than 22,000 shoppers each year and raising over $800,000 in ticket sales alone and approximately $0.85 of each dollar goes back to support the junior league’s mission, programs and community impact projects in the kansas city area, so it is truly great shopping for a great cause.
the event is held at bartle hall over a four day period where nearly 200 vendors fill the hall with booths selling goods that would make perfect gifts, from clothing, beauty products and jewelry to home decor and specialty foods. there is something for everyone on your list!
i cannot wait to attend this year and lucky for you, i am giving away two sets of tickets! there will be two winners and each winner will receive two single-day tickets for themselves and a guest to use on the day of their choosing. just scroll to the bottom of this post to enter. remember, the more entries you complete, the better your chances of winning, and some of the entry options are worth more points than others!
if you are not one of the lucky winners, you can pick up tickets at any area hen house market or online at the holiday mart website.
below are a few pictures from years’ past to give you an idea of what the event looks like. hope to see you there this year! 🙂
