The Junior League of Phoenix (JLP) will host its 81st annual Rummage Sale from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018 at the Arizona State Fairgrounds. As one of JLP’s signature fundraisers, the Rummage Sale is “Arizona’s Largest Garage Sale,” which provides shoppers with an opportunity to purchase an array of new and gently-used items at deeply discounted prices.
Thousands of items will be for sale, which regularly include: art; baby accessories and furniture; books; clothing for men, women, children and babies; collectibles; electronics and appliances; holiday items; home office supplies; house wares; furniture; kitchen and dining wares; lawn and garden supplies; sporting goods; toys and more.
The Rummage Sale is divided into two sessions; the morning session is held from 8 a.m. – noon and the afternoon session is held from 1-4 p.m. Admission to the morning session is $5 at the door, while admission to the afternoon session is free. All items are 50 percent off during the afternoon session.
For the past 17 years, the Junior League of Phoenix Rummage Sale has provided more than 600 women with free mammograms through a grant that originated from Susan G. Komen Arizona. The free mammogram program has been supported for the past four years through the generosity of Fry’s Food Stores and the Desert Cancer Foundation of Arizona.
Funds raised from the Rummage Sale will help support the mission of The Junior League of Phoenix, including its community programs and leadership training programs. Current League programs are structured around JLP’s focus area of “Building a Healthy Arizona” including: ROCKETS—Raising Our Children’s Knowledge by Educating Through Science, a program that promotes early childhood development of science skills; Kids in the Kitchen, a nutritional initiative that seeks to combat childhood obesity; and Kids Cook with Heart, a partnership with the American Heart Association that provides hands-on healthy cooking classes and nutrition and cardio vascular health education to valley youth, Ending Hunger in the Classroom, a partnership with Valley of the Sun United Way which provides 4,700 students in nine Valley schools with a healthy nutritious breakfast, and Phoenix Day HealthLinks, a program focused on preventative health services to low-income families, including linkages to health and nutrition resources.
