The Junior League of Little Rock will be postponing Holiday House, its annual holiday celebration, for 2020.
Now in its 30th edition, Holiday House was scheduled to be held in November 2020. Now, the organizers will be rescheduling it for Nov. 10-13, 2021 at the Statehouse Convention Center.
“The Junior League of Little Rock’s Holiday House will be postponed to 2021,” JLLR President Casey Rockwell said. “We were looking forward to another memorable year, however, with the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, this decision is the only responsible solution. The health and safety of our volunteers, vendors, guests, and the entire Little Rock community remains our highest priority.”
With more than 200 merchants and approximately 14,000 customers, Holiday House is the largest holiday shopping event in the Central Arkansas region. Holiday House generates a substantial amount of Junior League’s funding for its community projects.
“AY partnered with JLLR for its 29th Holiday House last year, the annual shopping extravaganza event that also has an impact on the community,” said publisher Heather Baker. “We are sad that this event is cancelled, but look forward to next year.”
Most recently, JLLR partnered with Camp Aldersgate to help Kota Camp volunteers mail campers a “camp-in-a-box.” The Stuff the Bus project donated school supplies to more than 3,500 students in the Little Rock School District. JLLR donated over 700 masks to the Office of Health Equity at the Arkansas Department of Health in July and awarded emergency community grants to various nonprofit organizations in April.
