“Making Spirits Bright” is the theme of the 2016 Sugar Plum Market, but it’s also what the Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) has been doing since its inception in 2001.
Through funds raised at the popular holiday shopping event, the Sugar Plum Market has donated more than $1.9 million to various Fort Bend County charities. Those grants have and will continue to brighten the spirits of so many in need.
Presented by Memorial Hermann, the 16th annual market will take place at the Stafford Centre Performing Arts Theatre and Convention Center Friday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 5. Market hours will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. A special preview night shopping event will be held Nov. 3 from 6 to 10 p.m. Unique vendors from across Texas will fill the Stafford Centre for the shopping extravaganza.
General Admission tickets for Friday or Saturday are $12 each. A limited number of preview night tickets are available for $75 each and include advance shopping Thursday night, a preview night drink ticket, light hors d’oeuvres, and market entry Friday and Saturday.
Tickets may be purchased online beginning Sept. 1 at www.sugarplummarket.com. The Sugar Plum Market offers a variety of sponsorship and underwriting opportunities for both businesses and individuals. Sugar Plum Market sponsors receive benefits including event signage, website and program recognition, plus preview night tickets with early sponsor entry. Preview night has consistently sold out each year.
