Bargain Boutiques Winter 2014

Bargain Boutiques staff members at the Nov. 14 Zulily sample sale

For the third year in a row, Seattle Children's Bargain Boutiques joined Research Champions and raised funds to support the work of Dr. Mike Jensen and his team at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research.

The six Bargain Boutiques raised a total of $21,946 for pediatric cancer research. Stores raised money by hosting a tea party and selling handmade items, special toys and books. Bargain Boutiques staff also continued their partnership with Zulily and hosted sample sales in November and December, which raised an additional $32,436. To encourage cash donations from shoppers, each store will also continue to display canisters.
