The Colleagues' Trinkets and Treasures Sale raises funds for our Philantropic Projects.

Fundraising

There are two Trinkets and Treasures sales a year. The main sale is held in the second week in March and includes a preview night and then a two day sale. Another smaller parking lot sale is held in the summer for one day. Items are donated during the year from members and the public. They are sorted and priced. The items are stored in the basement of the chapter and in rented garages nearby. Trinkets and Treasures rummage sales are the only fundraising. Members are required to work in the rummage storage room during the year. They are assigned a month in which to work. They are also required to work in the two sales.

Social Activities

There are three parties during the year:

  • After the March Trinkets and Treasures sale
  • A summer beach party
  • A holiday party
