the premiere Holiday Mart events in the country. Holiday Mart, the
Junior League’s largest fund raiser, will celebrate it 20th year in
Kansas City this year, and will contribute to over the $4,700,000 in
monies generated to date to support projects in our Kansas City
community, including our Impact Area, Children’s Literacy.
