Central Coast charities benefit from the recent
Pearl Beach ‘Wardrobe Winners’ new and as-new clothing sale
The recent extremely successful weekend clothing sale – “Wardrobe Winners” attracted capacity crowds over two days and packed the Memorial Hall looking for bargains or that something special.
After expenses the exciting event raised over $8,000 and two Central Coast charities, Guide Dogs NSW/ACT Central Coast Support Group and Central Coast Grandparents Support Services will each receive a donation of $2,000 from proceeds of the weekend sale.
Roger Murray, President of the Pearl Beach Progress Association said, “the chosen charities reflect the diversity of financial and in-kind support that is provided by a number of Central Coast charitable organisations. Guide Dogs NSW/ACT offer free services to enhance the quality of life of people who are blind or vision impaired by assisting in their achievement of independence through access and mobility.
The Central Coast – Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program, provides support to the growing number of grandparents who find themselves faced with taking on the parental responsibility of their grandchildren. On behalf of the Pearl Beach Progress Association we are delighted to make a financial donation to these charities”.
He continues, “in addition, acknowledgement must be made to the Central Coast Salvation Army who generously loaned clothing racks and provided professional advice. A significant donation of un-sold clothing has been given to them for distribution to those in need, and for sale in their outlets”.
The remaining funds from the weekend will go toward the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall maintenance and upkeep. The event as a fundraising activity was supported by the Pearl Beach Progress Association, who would like to thank members of the community who generously volunteered to set-up and support the event. Not least, recognition must be made to the bargain hunters who came in their hundreds searching for that something special.
