This event is a fundraiser for Project Graduation, an all-night, alcohol and drug-free party exclusively for FHS graduating seniors. The event is held on graduation night at the school. The original Project Graduation event grew out of a wave of tragedies, 18 students were killed in drug and alcohol related accidents on graduation night. Graduation night and prom night are statistically the two most deadly nights for high school teenagers.

Mistletoe Market is organized and hosted by the Franklin High School Parent Association and is not endorsed by Williamson County Schools.
