Benefiting the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier’s community projects serving at-risk families, Shopping for a Cause showcases beautiful art, home furnishings, and social opportunities at themed events. Vendor Candice Alexander’s fleur-de-lis-inspired prints rep everything from favorite sports teams to local landmarks while signaling covert support for the restoration of the French monarchy. Custom wreaths from MilandDil Designs weave understated circular bouquets, and K&K’s Giving Tree comforts customers with scented candles and pajamas.
After the shopping is done and kids have been entrusted to husbands or very responsible pets, patrons can let their hair down at Girls Night Out, sponsored by Red River Bank and Sid Potts, Inc. Delicacies from Silver Palate Cakery, Cascio’s, and other local dessert dens pile platters, and signature cocktails courtesy of Thrifty Liquor dissolve dance-floor inhibitions before a DJ starts crafting rug-cutting beats.
Alternatively, Breakfast with the Bunnies wakes up little ones with a Monsour’s Restaurant–catered buffet specially designed for picky young palates. Kids under 12 are admitted free to this breakfast, during which the Easter Bunny and his junior helpers will bounce around the room ready to field conspiratorial suggestions to teach the tooth fairy a lesson from kids who only got a quarter for prize bicuspids.
Junior League Market
Each of the Junior League Market's events help the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier carry out projects that serve at-risk women and children, from playing bingo with hospitalized kids to increasing community awareness about domestic violence. The community especially rallies together during the Shopping for a Cause events at the Shreveport Convention Center, where up to 140 merchants—including new faces and favorite sellers from years past—gather to sell their wares in one place. At the Girls’ Night Out event, Mike's Light & Sound plays music to set the mood as ladies sip drinks or nibble hors d'oeuvres and desserts, including treats from Woo Hoo Whoopies and Bistro Byronz. The event also includes door prizes and shopping at the market.
Kids can get involved through the Breakfast with the Bunnies event, where Barnes Portraiture snaps shots of children forging telepathic connections with live bunnies. Meanwhile, families can sit down to breakfast from Monsour's before they head into the market to peruse the booths.
