Here’s how to donate designer goods to the ninth annual YWCA Dress for Success sale.

The dates for this year’s YWCA Closet Treasures sale (the 9th annual) have been announced: Friday and Saturday October 14 and 15 at the Bravern.

Women across Seattle and the Eastside look forward to shopping the donated designer and couture finds each year, while other women look forward to making use of the Dress for Success programs and services that are funded by the sale. 100 percent of the proceeds raised each year go toward the practical, emotional, and spiritual needs of local women who are working hard to make improvements to their lives.

We want to make sure the sale is on your radar, yes, but also, organizers of the event have issued a plea and we’re hoping you’ll respond.

Donations received this year equal 60 percent fewer than years past. From organizer Kiantha Duncan of YWCA Clothing Services:

"Please consider donating a minimum of one high end designer or couture item for this year’s sale by October 5. Please ask friends, family, neighbors and co-workers to join you by donating as well. Everyone that donates will receive a buy one get one free coupon for admittance to our VIP preview sale on October 14.

Items that typically sell quickly at the Closet Treasures Sale are the following: designer handbags, shoes, one of a kind pieces, designer cocktail dresses and wedding dresses. We accept designer items ranging from Eileen Fisher to St. John and Gucci."
