They call it "shopping with a purpose!"
The Junior League of Topeka kicked off its eighth annual Merry Market sale with a luncheon Friday.
As part of the event, the organization also presented its Community volunteer of the Year award to Debra Clayton of Clayton Financial. She was chosen from fellow nominees Karily Taylor of the Marian Clinic and Anita Wolgast, co-chair of the NOTO Arts District.
Clayton credited her fellow nominees and fellow Junior League members in accepting the award, saying great things happen when people come together in service.
For winning, Clayton chose the Doorstep organization to receive a $1,000 donation in her honor.
The Merry Market is open for shopping from 9 am to 3 pm Saturday at the Expocentre's Ag Hall. It features clothing, accessories, home decor and more.
Proceeds benefit the Junior League's programs, such as the Diaper Depot.
