Have you heard the news?! Our 2015 HopeChest wedding rummage sale raised $8,000 for the featured charities of Get Hitched, Give Hope!!! Our sincerest thanks to everyone who helped make it possible — our staff of volunteers, who showed up before 6:30AM to set up and helped manage a crowd of shoppers who lined up down the block; our generous event sponsors, who provided snacks, beverages, entertainment, and the infrastructure to keep the whole sale running smoothly; and YOU, our altruistic donors and shoppers, the ones who gave your extra wedding supplies and the ones who bought them at bargain prices to love them again!
We are so grateful to everyone who joined us, from the VIP shoppers, who formed a line down the block by 10AM, to the last ones in the door, who helped us clear the half-priced items off the tables before we carted the remains to Goodwill. Every sponsor brought their A-game, and smiles to the face of each guest who sipped bubbly or espresso, snacked on appetizers and tiny cupcakes, enjoyed music to shop to and mugged in the photobooth. Check out the photos below, by Laura Marchbanks Photography, to see the setup, the goodies, the mad rush, and the fun time had by all!
With the funds raised from the sales at HopeChest, we’ll be able to grant even more wishes for adults with terminal illnesses with Dream Foundation and provide even more support to young survivors of breast cancer with Young Survival Coalition. Thank you for helping make that possible!!
