A Glitter Sale Thank You!

The 26th Annual Glitter Sale was a huge success! Proceeds from the two-day event totaled a whopping $140,000 this year, all of which supports Goodwill's free job training and education programs in the community.

Where do I begin to thank you for your generosity?

Thank you donors for passing along beautiful clothing, shoes, belts, bags, hats, and jewelry that you no longer wear, so that they can be used and enjoyed by others.

Thank you volunteers, who spend hours upon hours racking, sizing, pricing and colorizing Glitter Sale merchandise, and then wake up early and stay late to work the sales floor throughout the weekend.

Thank you partners, PEMCO's WALLY (We're A Lot Like You) truck for free coffee and donuts and the STORM's Doppler, for amusing us all.

Thank you media, from mainstream to social networking, from the printed page to the airwaves, from blog posts to Twitter feeds, for spreading the word.

Thank you shoppers, for braving the dark, the cold and the line to stop and shop with patience, humor and generosity.

Thank you all. We are grateful for your support.
