Shoppers take part in last year’s Fall Shopping Frenzy. This year’s event is Friday and Saturday at Brighton High School.

The Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County is ready to kick off the holiday season in style with the 11th Annual Fall Shopping Frenzy on Nov. 1-2 at Brighton High School.

The Fall Shopping Frenzy has become a Tipton holiday tradition that pairs local artisans and vendors with the Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County, offering an opportunity for shoppers to get a head start on their holiday shopping, while also serving as the primary fundraiser for the Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County’s service projects.

Junior Auxiliary members are encouraged to render charitable services which are beneficial to the public, with emphasis on children; and to cooperate with other organizations performing similar services. On average, the chapter performs over 2,000 community service hours each year.
