Fashionable Friday – This Weekend: 30+ Boutiques Selling Designer Items 50-80% Off for Charity

The Junior League of Baltimore is having a Boutique Warehouse Sale this weekend in Hunt Valley. This will be the organization’s biggest fundraiser, with proceeds going toward their programs and operating expenses.

The event is free and open to the public Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18. Vendors will accept cash and credit transactions only.

So, how does an event like this work? Most Boutiques share a 50-50 split of the sale price of the items with the JLB, and a few boutiques donate the clothing and let the League take the full sale price. Most items are 50% off retail, with some up to 80% off retail.

Saturday, September 17, 2011 9:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M.
Sunday, September 18, 2011  11:00 A.M. -2:00 P.M.

About the League:

The Junior League of Baltimore, Inc. has been serving the community for 100 years. The Junior League of Baltimore is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

“Contrary to the white glove depiction of the Junior League in the recent book and movie, The Help, today’s Junior League is a racially and culturally diverse group of women who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. Whether helping clear weeds and debris at Cherry Hill’s Urban Garden or spending a rain-soaked afternoon helping with Marathon Kids, the League’s trained volunteers are ready to help,” said Vice President of Communications, Laura Calhoun.

Through the years, the JLB focus has included sports programs for school children, homelessness, schools and libraries, museums, family centers, seniors programs, literacy and mentoring. They helped establish the Hampden Family Center, Waxter Senior Center, and Maryland School for the Blind, and have lobbied successfully for legislative changes to benefit victims of domestic abuse.

The JLB awards college scholarship money each year to a deserving female high school senior, chosen from entries from the entire state of Maryland. Currently, their focus is on the battle against childhood obesity.

In addition to their annual Kids in the Kitchen Event at Port Discovery, the JLB are rolling out a pilot program with Govans Elementary, Kids in the Kitchen On the Road: An eight week program designed to educate children on healthy eating and physical fitness. Participants will receive a free pass to the YMCA during the program as well as a free bus pass. Successful graduates of the program will be awarded a free year of membership to the YMCA. This program begins October 1, and is closed to the public.

The Junior League of Baltimore also owns and operates The Wise Penny Thrift Store on York Road in the Govans community.
