The Fort Bend Junior Service League established the fun-filled, festive holiday shopping extravaganza known as Sugar Plum Market in 2000.
Since it’s inception, Sugar Plum Market has raised more than $1.9 million benefiting many local Fort Bend County Charities.
Previous grants have contributed to educational programs, food pantries, assistance for women and children, literacy programs, and many other charitable needs. The 16th Annual Market will focus this year’s “Making Spirits Bright” theme on the amazing organizations that have benefited from these grants through the years.
