Large Turnout At Tag Sale

The Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club’s Annual Club Closet Tag Sale, held this year on April 12, 13 and 14, was a great success, providing much needed additional funding for the many programs the club provides.  Bicycles, rugs, handbags, lamps and holiday decorations, all donated by members of the community, were among the many popular items that were for sale. This year, in partnership with the Worth Repeating consignment shop in Locust Valley, a new clothing boutique section was added as well.

 

Betsy Gibbs, owner of Worth Repeating and chairperson of this year’s Club Closet Tag Sale said, “Melissa Rhodes and her staff, the board members and many volunteers all worked very hard to make the event a success.”  

 

“The sale’s success is directly attributable to a trifecta of support,” said Executive Director Melissa Rhodes.  “The wonderful donations we receive from members in the community, the tireless energy of our volunteers and the many customers who come out over the weekend to shop all play an integral part in the success of this event.  Without any one sector, we would not be able to achieve our goal –to raise significant dollars to support the many programs and services we offer to the children of Glen Cove.”

 

Board members Christine Pell and Aimee Eberle were among the volunteers who manned the checkout table on Saturday.  Pell remarked, “There has been a steady stream of traffic all day.” 

 

Deborah Brisbane, board president, was pleased with the large turnout.  “This event,” she said, “brings the community into the club and gives us an opportunity to tell them all about what the club does.”

 

Since 1903 the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club at Lincoln House has been providing a safe and caring environment for young people in Glen Cove. The Club provides services to more than 700 youth, ages 6-18, by offering a variety of after school and summer programs all designed to enhance learning and promote self-esteem.  Each day during the school year 120 children attend the after-school program at the Club where they receive homework help and engage in numerous recreational and social activities.
