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
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
about how to support the efforts of our six Bargain Boutiques.
