You know it’s holiday season in DFW when you open up your mailbox and find your first holiday market invitation by your local women’s group. Whether you are talking a junior league, sorority, or a women’s club, holiday markets are THE event to attend of the season. While holiday shopping is the focus, there is always a lot more on the agenda for these huge events – like fashion shows, cocktail nights, celebrity appearances and children’s fun as well.
Some of these holiday markets have already launched their events with kick-off parties as early as September to get everyone in the holiday spirit…of buying that is. But don’t worry – the proceeds from these events go back to the organizations to help fund all their community outreach and operations throughout the whole year. So feel good about shopping while you are making an impact in your community.
