The Junior League of Huntington to sponsor annual Mistletoe Market

November 11, 2018

HUNTINGTON — Huntington Junior League President’s Carly Hackman announced the organization will once again sponsor a proud Huntington community service tradition, Mistletoe Market, an annual holiday shopping experience that provides funding to help alleviate hunger in the region. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 16 at the Ramada Limited in Huntington.

“This is one of my favorite Junior League fundraisers, because so many individuals come together for the good of our community - to help kids, families and those in need,” Hackman said. “Proceeds support our mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve communities through vital service projects like our can soup drive and our summer backpack program.”

About 30 vendors are expected and several custom silent auction baskets are up for grabs, making this year’s Mistletoe Market one of the largest in the organization’s history. Jim’s Steak and Spaghetti House is this year’s ticket sponsor.

“It is an event that you don’t want to miss,” Co-Chair of the Mistletoe Market Planning Committee Leanna Canup said. “It is a win-win because you get to shop for the holidays, connect with your neighbors and help those less fortunate. There are not many events that have this much positive impact on the community.”

Proceeds raised will help support the Junior League’s mission of service - an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

“At Mistletoe Market, I’m able to promote my creativity and celebrate the Christmas season, while supporting a very worthwhile cause with my daughter,” said Cheryl Dawson of Tropical Holiday, a vendor participating in the event.
