Around Town: Soroptimists annual Great Island Giveaway
October 31, 2012 · Updated 4:06 PM
The ladies of the Friday Harbor Chapter of Soroptimist International will once again make it easy to clean out your closest and come home with a treasure.
That’s right. The fifth annual Great Island Giveaway — “give”, as in free — is Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Mullis Community Senior Center, 589 Nash St., 10:30 a.m. to noon.
Here’s how it works: Bring up to 12 usable items in good, clean condition you’re willing to part with or exchange. With each donated item, you receive a ticket that can be traded in for another donated item that you may either want or need.
Nothing to donate? No problem. Tickets can also be purchased for $1; proceeds help Soroptimist defray the event’s rental costs.
Drop-off for donations begins at 10:30 a.m. The exchange starts at noon, no earlier, with the ringing of a bell.
Coffee and sweets are provided by Soroptomists. Info, 378-3537.
