FBJSL Charitable Fundraising Continues in 2020

posted on

Fort Bend, Texas:

The 2020 Sugar Plum Marketplace is right around the corner!  This highly anticipated virtual holiday shopping affair takes place November 3 – 8, 2020 via a new, professionally designed online platform.

The Marketplace is presented by nonprofit organization Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) and title sponsor Memorial Hermann Sugar Land.  To prioritize the health and safety of volunteers, patrons, and vendors, this year’s virtual Marketplace will take the place of the in-person Sugar Plum Market – the annual fundraiser organized by FBJSL.  Since its inception in 2001, this event has raised over $3.2 million.  These funds directly benefit charitable organizations as well as scholarship funds supporting education, volunteerism, and community service.

Tickets are priced at only $15 each and are available for purchase on www.sugarplummarketplace.com.  Discounted ticket bundles are also offered online.  Ticket perks include the following:

  • Each ticket purchase is equivalent to a charitable donation.
  • Shoppers have access to over 100 unique, boutique-style vendors throughout the duration of the event.
  • Every single vendor is offering shopping incentives exclusively for ticketholders.
  • Ticketholders have access to a Mystery Jewelry Pull hosted by Kendra Scott Sugar Land.

As the holiday season approaches, FBJSL hopes patrons will take advantage of this opportunity to make an impact in the lives of many while also safely enjoying the Marketplace.  For the latest updates, please follow @sugarplummarket on Facebook and Instagram.

FBJSL would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the following sponsors:  Pamela Printing, absolutely! focus media, Bright Spot Creative, Kendra Scott, Newmark Homes, The Sansone Group at RE/MAX Fine Properties, Allen Boone Humphries Robinson LLP, Sugar Land Town Square, Trustmark National Bank, The Sterling McCall Group and Living Magazine.
