Bargain Boutiques Winter 2013

Bargain Boutiques staff also partnered with Zulily to host a sample sale and raise an additional $38,000 for cancer research.

Seattle Children's Bargain Boutiques joined Research Champions again this year: each store raised $2,500 or more for pediatric cancer research.

Stores raised a combined $15,000 and hosted creative events and promotions to encourage support. The Redmond Bargain Boutique held a "Gifts for a Cure Sale" and displayed specific merchandise on sale to benefit cancer research, raising more than $3,300. Each store will continue to display canisters to encourage cash donations from shoppers.

This is the second year in a row that the Bargain Boutiques became members of Research Champions, a donor recognition program at Children's. The Bargain Boutiques staff continues to be inspired by Dr. Mike Jensen , director of the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research , and his vision to "reprogram" the body's own immune system to kill cancer cells .
