Over 2,500 Glitter Sale shoppers raised $310,000 for job training and education programs!
A record number of shoppers attended the 33rd Annual Glitter Sale at Goodwill, and their purchases helped make this year’s sale a success! More than 2,500 people bought $310,000 worth of eveningwear, shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories on Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6. There were also 200 people who shopped the pre-sale on Thursday, November 4. All proceeds from the sale will support Goodwill’s free job training and education programs for low-income and underserved people in the community.
Before the sale opened to the public at 9 am on Saturday, over 600 excited shoppers formed a line that stretched along Goodwill’s building and out to Dearborn Street to be among the first to browse the racks of designer, vintage and one of a kind pieces.
“We really want to thank the community for supporting both the sale and gala and making them such a huge success,” said Goodwill President & CEO Daryl Campbell. “The proceeds we raised will allow Goodwill to help more people in our community get jobs. Last year Seattle Goodwill served over 9,700 individuals.”
