WHY do we hold Marketplace Magic?
—- MPM raises funds to support the Junior League of Billings’ mission. Founded in 1954, the League started many well know organizations, including the Tumbleweed Runaway Program, Venture into the Schools and Wise Wonders, A Montana Children’s Museum. We partner with many other agencies in Billings to provide enrichment opportunities for children and families including Early Childhood Intervention Services and the Montana Rescue Mission. Our most recent signature project has been No Cost Laundry Days in partnership with local laundry facilities to allow families the opportunity to clean their clothes, bedding, coats without the burden of payment. Along with volunteer experience, Junior League of Billings members are given superb training opportunities developing leaders in our community. We provide local training and leadership programming and some members attend conferences outside of Billings.
HOW is MPM different from other vendor shows and why should I attend?
—- Marketplace Magic is not only a fun shopping experience, but a fundraising event. Your attendance alone can help us to further our mission and projects. Please come, bring your friends, share the event. Attend some of the other side events listed below!
