A Nutcracker Market Shining Star is a special category of individual donors. As a "Shining Star", your $200 contribution honors the true stars of this event - the 100+ committee members and over 900 volunteers required to host the annual Nutcracker Market – the largest and best holiday market in Texas!  Plus, your donation goes directly to supporting Houston Ballet Foundation, its Academy and Scholarship programs. 

With your contribution, you will receive TWO Early Bird tickets (valued at $100), which allow you early access to the Market at 8:30 AM on Thursday and Friday for an extra 90 minutes of shopping. Plus, the tickets are good for repeat admission on all four days! Not only that, but your name will be listed in our program (if received by October 1). 

Join us as a Nutcracker Market Shining Star and show off your support for Houston Ballet’s largest fundraiser!
