It’s time to shine! The 11th Annual Glitter Gala benefiting Goodwill is October 20. The Gala includes dinner, raffle and the fan favorite, the Glitter Gala Fashion Show. This year’s theme is “Runway to The Future.” The runway show will be divided into six categories, showcasing Goodwill finds as well as pieces created by local designers with materials found at Goodwill and inspired by this year’s futuristic theme.

This yearly event is always about inspiring brighter futures. Proceeds from it support Goodwill’s free job training programs, and this year the funding focus will be sector-specific. These programs provide paths toward further education and employment in high-demand industries, such as aerospace, maritime, retail/ customer service, and construction.

Also, mark your calendars, treasure hunters, for the 35th Annual Glitter Sale on November 10-11, 2018. At the 2017 sale, over 2,500 people bought $333,000 worth of glittery finds, with all proceeds supporting Goodwill’s free Job Training and Education Programs for low-income and underserved people in the community. The sale features formal wear for both men and women, shoes, handbags and boatloads of jewelry and accessories for holiday and special occasions. There are also special racks of designer, vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces.
