The Junior League of the Palm Beaches is proud to introduce the Small Business Entrepreneur Grant Program (SBEGP) in conjunction with the 2017 Deck the Palms Holiday Market. The SBEGP will award one local small business, the opportunity to showcase their product at a Premium Corner Booth, a prime placement, during the annual Junior League Deck the Palms Holiday Market, held on November 3 and November 4, 2017. The estimated market value of this grant is $500, to alleviate the cost of booth and equipment fees. In addition, the recipient of the grant will also be invited to showcase their merchandise at one JLPB General Membership meeting.
