2014 Market Wrap-up from the Chair:
Our Market with a Mission was a huge success! This event raised over $22,000 that will benefit the women and children of Angelina County through our various projects.
This year, we had 45 vendors that had a variety of merchandise to choose from. We received so many compliments from these vendors on how nice and hospitable we all are. It makes such a difference! Pre-party was outstanding with our food from Brookshire Bros. and Mar Teres and our entertainment by Left Arm Tan. Everyone had a great time! The luncheon was amazing with the food being catered by Mar Teres and the gift bags filled with items from 2-NV. Thank you to our very own Susan Belasco for making this happen! It was such a nice treat for our ladies who attended. We added a couple of events that helped bring in more shoppers. The bunny/chick pictures were a big hit! Thank you to Jenny Blackledge for taking these fabulous pictures!
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support! I especially want to thank my committee for all of their hard work. They spent many hours planning, preparing, and working the event. Also, a special thanks to Abby Todd and her culinary students. They were a huge help with the luncheon. Finally, this event could not happen without our League members. I am so appreciative of everyone who donated their time, attended the Market or assisted in any other way.
I look forward to the 2015 Spring Market and I know Kimberly Graham and her committee will do a wonderful job!
