Organizers moved racks of clothes into the Town Toyota Center in preparation for the My Girlfriend’s Closet fundraising event starting Friday.

WENATCHEE — The My Girlfriend’s Closet fundraising thrift shopping event is making its return Friday after being postponed for over a year due to COVID-19 precautions.

Shoppers can stop by from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday-Saturday and from 1-3 p.m. Sunday at the Town Toyota Center (TTC) for a selection of women’s clothing and accessories.

Women’s Service League of North Central Washington is hosting the annual sale.

Callie Klein, Women’s Service League president, said the nonprofit gave $55,000 in grants to Wenatchee Valley organizations after its 2019 My Girlfriend’s Closet fundraiser.

A few past beneficiaries include SAGE, Lighthouse Christian Ministries, Brave Warrior Project and school programs.

Items on sale will take up about half of the TTC’s concourse, she said. Visitors can expect to see gently used women’s clothing ranging from athletic wear to work attire.

Shoes, purses, scarves and jewelry will be available to purchase, she said. “You name it, we’ve got all of it and then some.”

Organizers were initially prepared to host the fundraiser March 19, but then everything kind of broke loose with COVID-19, she said.

Klein said she is excited to finally move forward with the event after roughly 20 months of waiting. It is the largest fundraiser for the Women’s Service League.

The event will not feature dressing rooms and requires attendees to wear masks.
