Reporting Ron Matz
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If you love clothes and great bargains, the Evergreen Museum on North Charles Street is the place to be this weekend.
Ron Matz reports it’s time to shop at the annual Best Dressed Sale for the benefit of Johns Hopkins Hospital.
At Evergreen, they are getting ready for the annual Best Dressed Sale. From jewelry to handbags, dresses to men’s clothing, the event is sponsored by the Women’s Board at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
“All of the proceeds go to the Johns Hopkins Hospital,” said Anne Robothan, co-chair of the Best Dressed Sale. “Last year we raised $200,000 on the sale. We hope to beat that this year.”
There are hundreds of bargains. Everything is donated by individuals and local boutiques.
“We’ve had amazing donations for men this year,” said Laurie Long, member of the Women’s Board of Johns Hopkins Hospital. “The suits are amazing. We have many jackets and a number of new items that we’ve picked up from Jos. A. Bank. We have many Polo shirts and ties. They gave us a great donation this year.”
Most of the work is done by volunteers.
“We certainly have a fantastic selection of clothes. We have a lot of great designer clothes, twice as many as we had last year. We collect clothes and accessories throughout the year. It’s very labor intensive,” said Robothan.
You can’t miss this sale, which is in its 46th year!
“The money raised from the Best Dressed Sale goes to patient care at Johns Hopkins Hospital,” said Duffy Weir, member of the Women’s Board of Johns Hopkins Hospital. “It’s for all the extras the hospital needs. We also give a scholarship to a nursing student and a medical student every year.”
The sale is happening all weekend. Even Ron Matz picked up a few $5 ties.
“$5 for a men’s tie,” Long said. “You can’t beat that. They’re beautiful silk ties. Just $10 for designer ties.”
The Best Dressed Sale continues through Sunday, Oct. 27 at Evergreen Museum and Library on North Charles Street. For more information, click here.
