Tag Sale Raises $14K

Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club held its Annual Club Closet Tag Sale in April, which was a huge success, thanks to the support of the community.  

Now in its 30th year, the tag sale is truly a neighborhood driven event with a community of donors, volunteers and shoppers working together to make this a successful event year after year for the children of the Glen Cove.

 

The event began with donations of hundreds of items from furniture to home décor and household goods to clothing and accessories.  Betsy Gibbs, owner of Worth Repeating, chaired the Club Closet Tag Sale again and more than 30 volunteers worked to help organize and prepare the gymnasium for the shopping event. Local businesses helped to promote the sale by posting signs on their storefront windows and spreading word of the sale.

 

Eager buyers stood in line in the rain on Friday night and paid a $10 fee just so they could preview and
get the pick of the lot. Many shoppers even returned the following day to scoop up items they may have
missed on their first trip. The sale helped to raise $14,000 (which represents 1.4 percent of the annual operating budget) needed to run programs servicing more than
700 youth in the Glen Cove community.
