Shop for a Cause!

 So, I have great news for any of my female readers, the news we have been waiting forever to hear … we finally have it!  An excuse to go shopping!!!  I know, men everywhere simultaneously rolled their eyes, held onto their wallets and made me public enemy number one!  Anyway, for those of you who are interested and who might be within driving distance of Kingsport, Tennessee, mark your calendars for next week!  The Junior League of Kingsport is hosting our 5’th Annual Holiday Market.

There are tons of vendors coming in from across the country with amazing goods and services!  I am the Assistant Co-Chair and I have been looking at the list of vendors and I cannot wait!  My bank account might not be as excited as I am!  Anyway, for those of you who are not familiar with what Junior League does or what the money raised from the Holiday Market goes to, here is some information.

Funds raised from Holiday Market go towards building brighter and more hopeful futures for the children and families in our community?  That is what the Junior League of Kingsport does.  We help establish new programs, support existing organizations, provide grants and scholarships to better the lives of children and families every step of the way.  Again, I know with the economy everyone is watching their budgets, but what could be more important than helping the children in our community?

Holiday Market is going on Oct. 6-8 at the Meadowview Marriott.  If you are interested here is the information and a link to the tickets!:

Thursday, October 6th – Ladies’ Night $35
Heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks, silent auction table, celebrity cookbook author book-signing, first dibs on shopping and an extra ticket to come back during General Shopping hours!

Friday, October 7th and Saturday, October 8th – General Shopping $5

New extended hours for the after-work crew! It’s never too late to squeeze in a little shopping before the weekend!  Friendly and fun activities planned for Family Hours on Saturday! The little ones will be entertained with magic, storytelling, airbrush tattoos, crafts and more from 10am – 2pm!

So, next week, come on out and SHOP FOR A CAUSE!
