The Fort Bend Junior Service League is excited to bring “Joy to the World” through the highly anticipated annual Sugar Plum Market by raising money for Fort Bend County’s charitable organizations, which provide for those most in need.
Since its inception in 2001, the Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) has found purpose in giving back to our community. Through funds raised at the popular holiday shopping event, the Sugar Plum Market has donated over $2.4 million to various Fort Bend County charities. Those grants have and will continue to bring joy into the lives of so many in need.
Presented by Memorial Hermann, the 19th annual market will take place at the Stafford on Friday, Nov. 8 and Saturday, Nov. 9. 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. 7 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Unique vendors from across Texas will fill the Stafford Centre for this ultimate one-stop holiday shopping extravaganza.
The Sugar Plum Market would not be able to contribute to charities in our community without generous sponsors and underwriters. The Sugar Plum Market offers a variety of sponsorship and underwriting opportunities for both businesses and individuals, with specially tailored packages available. Sugar Plum Market sponsors receive marketing benefits, with some packages including social media posts, event signage, and website and program recognition. Certain sponsor and underwriting levels gain access to a private VIP lounge area during the exclusive preview night event.
