Clothes for Kids auction more than doubles fundraising goal


Clothes for Kids, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing clothing to eligible children in Snohomish County, raised more than $7,400 during its Celebrate the Children luncheon and auction at Edmonds Lutheran Church last weekend.

“My goal was to raise $3,000 to $3,500,” said Nancy Laird-Burris, program manager of Clothes for Kids. “I was blown away by the response from the volunteers, the community and the attendees.”

Clothes for Kids expressed its gratitude to businesses in the community who made auction donations; to Edmonds Lutheran Church for the use of its Fellowship Hall; Job’s Daughters for their assistance during the event; Midge Tallman of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority for lending her talents as auctioneer; and to all those who attended.
