$10 BAG SALE FOR CHARITY! @ Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County
Dec 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Our $10 bag sale for charity has come upon us once again. Together with the help of our generous customers who have marked to donate the remaining clothes that we could not buy from them to this sale, have found a way to give back to our community. The sale is crazy but wonderful and you will not want to miss it. We provide a kitchen size garbage bag for you to stuff with a gymnasium full of clothing, shoes and accessories and each bag is only $10 cash. If you want to get in a half hour early it will cost you a $20 cash donation at the door to get in at 4:30pm, however that does not include the cost to your stuff to bag. All profits go to local charities as we have raised tens of thousands over the past eight years. We will try to donate at least $1000 to the Boys and Girls Club and then we will soon decide the other recipients. SOME ADVICE…Please try to leave small children at home, where comfy clothes as you will be sorting through piles on the floor, and do not bring things that you might lose or that might get stuffed into someone else’s bag.
