The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri: women building better communities.
Over the next few months, as we prepare for our League’s largest fundraiser, Holiday Mart, we will be featuring some of the ladies that make this event such as success. The Holiday Mart Committee has been working tirelessly throughout the year to create a one of a kind shopping experience for Kansas City shoppers.
Meet Tara Ammeen, Holiday Mart Staffing Chair. Tara has been a member of Junior League since 2008 and has been on the Holiday Mart Committee for the past two years. She works full time as the ‘CEO’ of the Ammeen Household where she lives with her husband and three daughters. Tara also does accounting work on a part time basis and loves to cook, eat, exercise, volunteer and be social!
Tara “Hearts Holiday Mart” because of all the fabulous women that work so hard to make the event such a success. Plus, it’s a multi-day event full of exciting shopping and great social events that raises money for many amazing non-profits!
The 2013 Holiday Mart will be held at Bartle Hall in Kansas City October 17-20. You can purchase your Holiday Mart tickets online!
Holiday Mart is the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri’s largest fundraiser. This upscale shopping extravaganza has been a fall tradition for over twenty-five years. With more than 200 specialty retailers and over 22,000 shoppers, the proceeds from Holiday Mart support community projects sponsored by JLKCMO, including our commitment to Children’s Fitness and Nutrition.
Since it began in 1987, Holiday Mart has helped to raise more than $8 million for Kansas City community projects and the Junior League’s mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our community. A donation to the Holiday Mart Fund helps to offset the costs of the event, allowing more funding for our projects.
