The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri: women building better communities.

Holiday Mart Committee | Kim Garrett

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 Kim Garrett, 2013 Business Manager. Kim has been involved in the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri for 10 years, often serving on the Finance council.   Kim has three children (Jordan, Katherine and Jackson) and frequently volunteers for their organizations, often filling a financial role.  (She enjoys spending other people’s money and her husband Sean fully supports this!)

Kim “Hearts the Mart” because she loves to shop!  She attended her first Holiday Mart in 2001 and immediately wanted to be a part of the organization behind this shopping extravaganza!  The more she learned about the League (behind the shopping), the more she fell in love with the mission…. Great shopping for a great cause.


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.
