JLKCMO – Holiday Mart

Bartle Hall is the site for the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri’s Holiday Mart on October 19th through the 22nd. Not only will shoppers find great gifts, (including some for themselves), but the event benefits the community. For example, two of the beneficiaries are Wayside Waifs and Happy Bottoms. More than 5,400 animals will find forever homes this year, thanks to Wayside Waifs. As for Happy Bottoms, the organization provides diapers to low-income families. These are even more reasons to smile when you say, “Charge it!” at Holiday Mart.
