Here are Corporate Incentives we like to encourage community involvement. One event we enjoy supporting and highlighting each year is the Jazzy Junque Extravaganza. This sale of donated goods benefits New Danville; “a self sustaining, master-planned, integrated community where adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities can live, learn, work and grow emotionally, socially, and spiritually with their non-disabled peers.” Started by a mom who has a son with a brain injury. Unsatisfied with her options, the beautiful community of New Danville was born.
OK, here are the details! There is a preview party, this is where all the real gems go, so you must buy a ticket to this party. You can purchase your ticket at the Conroe Outlet Mall or online here. There are only 300 available and they are going fast.
What you can expect to see is furniture, children’s toys, electronics, home decor, sports equipment and much more. Last year there was a grand piano and an array of oriental rugs. The volunteers have diligently worked to make this year even more spectacular than the last. Jazzy Junque raised $75,000 dollars last year and has a goal of raising $100,000 this year! Thanks to the donation of time and goods, young adults with disabilities are given a chance to live a normal dignified life.
How do you get involved? First you should visit New Danville’s website and get pumped about supporting such a wonderful charity. Second, you should buy a ticket to the preview party and bring your checkbook. (Last year the preview party was catered by Hubble & Hudson, yum city.)Third, you should think about volunteering at the event. They need volunteers in the following areas: furniture, home decor/accessories, baby/children’s items, antiques/collectibles, computers/electronics, sports/outdoor items, seasonal decor, linens, boutique. Also needed are check-out people, cashiers, security, relief workers, and furniture movers. You can email Patricia at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about volunteering.

The main event is at The Conroe Outlet Mall, Friday-Sunday. Friday and Saturday hours are 9am-5pm. Sunday hours are 1-5pm. This is the weekend of March 2nd-4th.
