At Seattle Goodwill, we love autumn. Sure, we’ll miss the warm summer days, and the late summer nights—but some of our absolute favorite events, sales, and holidays happen in September, October, and November. Check out what’s on the docket for the next few months at Seattle Goodwill:

LABOR DAY SALE: September 5
Join us for our annual Labor Day Sale! Stores will open an hour early, at 8 am. Get 99¢ green tags, and 40% off all pink and red tags. Outlet stores are excluded.

Seattle Goodwill Design ChallengeGOODWILL DESIGN CHALLENGE & NO-SEW REFASHION CONTEST: September 23

In past years, the Goodwill Design Challenge has been part of the Glitter Gala Fashion Show, but by popular demand, this year, it is a standalone runway event. Join us on September 23 for a night of fashion from up and coming local student designers. Top-ranked designers will get to feature their work on the Glitter Gala runway in October.

Want to participate? Sign up for the No-Sew Refashion Contest for a chance to win a prize package valued at $500, that includes a pair of tickets to Glitter Gala. Event details & ticketing >>


This is our 9th annual Glitter Gala & Fashion Show—and we’re excited to gather with community and business leaders at our only fundraising event. All proceeds will support our High School Completion programs.

There will be a cocktail hour featuring a prize raffle, silent auction, and the well-loved staple Glitter Gala game, Bling Toss. After cocktail hour, we’ll settle in for thematically inspired fine dining and the fashion show.
