Parent Volunteer Sign Up

Holiday Mart

The Holiday Mart is USJ’s biggest fundraiser each year. The three-day event features shopping with 125 merchants, homemade baked goods, dining, antiques, special events, and even an appearance by Santa Claus. In 2014, we set a record for ticket sales, and we hope to surpass that record this year with our 45th annual Holiday Mart. As always, we depend on parent volunteers to make the Mart a success.

This year’s Holiday Mart is November 20-22. We will continue the tradition of the Friday night Jingle Bell Mingle, which also had record sales in 2014. We will once again host a Preview Party on Thursday night, followed by the Tea Room on Friday. After a successful premiere last year, the Bruins Bistro will again be open for customers. An exciting new event with Santa will take place for the little ones this year on Sunday. Other new developments include changes in times: the Mart will open roughly 30 minutes earlier this year on Friday and Saturday and an hour earlier on Sunday. One of the most profitable areas of the Holiday Mart is the Bakeshop. USJ parents need to bake because these proceeds are 100% profit for the Mart.

This is the second year for Leanne Richardson and Anne Short to serve as Co-Chairmen of the Holiday Mart. Their goal, with the help of Tarsha Basham and Nikki Watlington, is for this to be the biggest and most profitable Holiday Mart yet.
