The Junior League annual event Holiday Happening has rung in the Lubbock Christmas season since 1979 in a very special way. Not only is it one of the first visits from Santa Claus to the Lubbock area, but there is wonderful entertainment the whole family can enjoy.

They promise plenty of shimmer and holiday sparkle again this year through dedicated work by scores of Junior League volunteers. This is the Junior League's biggest and most important fund raiser of the year.

Funds raised support the Junior League in their community efforts for the Food2Kids program, the YWCA's Fun 'N' Sun Center and efforts to help teach children about good nutrition, just to name a few of the important things that they do in the Lubbock community according to their website.

The Sneak Peak is November 16th, and the event runs through November 20th at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
