The Ladies Board Logo77th Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale Needs Your Donations

Leesburg, VA – September 21, 2015 – The Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun Hospital needs your donations for the annual Rummage Sale.

Red balloons will direct traffic to the specially designated trailers.

“Volunteers often meet donors by advance appointment since this is usually the most convenient way to donate, however we have very strong turn out during these Donation Day events,” said Lisa Cromwell, chairman of the Sale. “For those large furniture items, we offer professional pick up service.   The schedule fills quickly, so call with as much notice as possible.”

The Ladies Board Rummage Sale is known as the largest sale in the mid-Atlantic region and was recently named the Best Annual Charity Event in Northern Virginia by Virginia Living magazine. It is the ultimate in bargain hunting and attracts a loyal, growing fan base each year.  More information about the Sale can be found at www.facebook.com/LadiesBoard where updates are posted regularly.

For more information, please call 703-771-2985, email RummageLadies@gmail.com or review the donation guidelines online at www.LadiesBoard.org/rummage.  Organizers request that items be packed in boxes with lids/flaps shut and use plastic kitchen bags for clothing or linens.

All donations received will be offered for sale at the 77th Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale on Saturday, Oct. 17 and Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015 at Morven Park – Tutt Lane entrance, 41793 Tutt Lane (off Route 15) in Leesburg, VA.
