This Saturday, you are invited to shop at the Lilly Pulitzer store at NorthPark, with 10% of the day’s proceeds going to the charities of Chi Omega Christmas Market. The Market isn’t ‘til November 19-21, but October 24 there will be refreshments in the store and a shopping party for a good cause.

This year’s Market benefits several charities, including LH favorite – Healing Hands Ministries. Healing Hands provides medical and dental care to the needy among us, using donations, grants, and many dedicated neighborhood volunteers. Market proceeds will also go to Bridge Breast Network, Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Heroes For Children, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Promise House, and Wednesday’s Child.

No ticket is needed for the Lilly Pulitzer event, but Market tickets are available online, or you can pop into the Healing Hands medical clinic, 7475 Skillman, Suite 103 B, to say hello and purchase tickets. Day tickets are $10 and tickets allowing readmission are $20. The Market is held in the Dallas Convention Center, Exhibit Hall A, 650 S. Griffin Street in downtown Dallas. “We were very pleased to be selected as a beneficiary for Chi Omega Christmas Market,” Healing Hands founder and director Janna Gardner told me. “Chi O Christmas has a 32 year history of helping Dallas organizations accomplish their mission, and we are looking forward to being affiliated with this community tradition.”
