    Kingwood Women’s Club Holiday Marketplace

    October 22 & 23, 2018

    Kingwood Women’s Club, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1985 with the goal of providing volunteers to perform service through various community organizations. KWC, which now has over 150 members, has exceeded its original goal and has been able to give over $1,000,000 in donations to local philanthropic organizations as part of its community service.

    The source of funds for our donations is the annual Holiday Marketplace – an upscale, two-day shopping event held at the Humble Civic Center in October. Money is raised by selling entrance tickets, holding a silent auction and raffle, hosting a luncheon, and renting booth space and collecting a percentage of the sales from the vendor booths

    The local organizations that have benefited from the Holiday Marketplace are: Humble Area Assistance Ministries, The Gathering Place, Project Mammogram, Mission Northeast, Society of St. Stephens, Village Learning Center, LSC-Kingwood Scholarships, Kingwood Library, Family Time, YMCA, and Feed My Lambs.

    This year our KWC Holiday Marketplace will be held at the Humble Civic Center located at 8233 Will Clayton Parkway, Humble, Texas 77338.  We will have over 100 booths from all over Texas selling jewelry, clothes, gifts, floral, food and much more.  It is a great girl’s day out!

    Tickets will go on sale in September (date to be announced) and may be purchased in advance from any member, Sterling Events/Alspaugh’s Ace Hardware or on our website:
