BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — You can knock out most of your Christmas shopping early this weekend your purchases will go to help a local girl struggling with a terminal illness.
The 12th annual Mistletoe Market is coming to the Belle of Baton Rouge Atrium on Saturday, Nov. 10 and Sunday, Nov. 11. Over 150 vendors from across the south will be showcasing unique gifts. Like always, there's something for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
As an added bonus, your $4 admission will help a 6-year-old from Livingston Parish.
"Half of proceeds are going to Olivia Lewis, a girl in Denham Springs suffering from a terminal illness called Battens disease,” Anne Ogea, Mistletoe Market, said. “We are trying to help her."
This year organizers hope to raise enough money to buy little Olivia's family a special van.
You can shop for a cause at the Mistletoe Market this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. inside the Belle of Baton Rouge's Atrium. Parking is free inside the Belle's parking garage.
