Mistletoe Gala

Home / Culture / Mistletoe Gala


The Junior League of Jackson’s Mistletoe Marketplace Preview Gala has a 35-year history as one of the city’s hottest events when the weather gets cold. “The preview party is always a fun kickoff for the holiday shopping season,” says Elaina Jackson, the Junior League’s vice president of communications.

With 2014’s theme, “Making Spirits Bright,” gala attendees had an excuse to get gussied up, glittered and sequined to match the party’s sparkling decorations. While that’s all in good fun, Jackson emphasizes the worthy causes that the event supports. Every year, Mistletoe Marketplace brings in more than $1 million towards “health, early literacy, and social and emotional wellness,” she says. “Although it’s a fun and exciting event and people love to wear their sequins, it’s an event that really is making a huge impact in the metro Jackson area.” —LaTonya Miller
