Shop ’til you drop on the cheap. The Junior League Holiday Galleria is an annual upscale shopping event and fundraiser that supports non-profit programs in the local community. The Galleria brings together merchants from across the country to provide Wichita residents with the opportunity to find fun and unique gifts for everyone on their list — all in one place, and with free gift-wrapping.
The event takes place at Century II Expo Hall, Thursday through Sunday, October 7-10, 2010.
Admission is normally $8 per person, but if you stop by Ultra Modern Pool & Patio’s east or west Wichita locations, you can pick up a voucher to take with you to the Century II box office that will get you and a friend in for just $13.
Bring a few friends and split the $8 valet parking fee so you won’t have to lug your packages to the car, or consult ?2P–Where to Park for a list of paid and free parking near Century II.
This year’s event also includes a Premier Party, Girls Night Out, and Brunch and Fashion Show that each require special tickets. For more information, see the Holiday Galleria Schedule at HolidayGalleria.org.
The Junior League of Wichita uses proceeds from the Holiday Galleria, along with volunteer resources and time, to support projects that help local kids. If your non-profit has such a project and would like to apply for consideration, go to www.jlwichita.org and click on “How We Help.”
