A holiday preview event will offer holiday decorations, clothing and housewares at the Assistance League of East Valley Thrift Shop, 2326 N. Alma School Road, Chandler on Monday, Nov. 12. Normally closed on Mondays, the shop will open noon-6 p.m. exclusively for preview shoppers.
The special event will help the all-volunteer group dress more than 9,000 schoolchildren this year. There will be carolers and treats.
The sale also gives early birds a chance to get some Christmas shopping done at bargain prices.
Assistance League is an all-volunteer group that raises money for philanthropic projects through their thrift shop and through fundraising events throughout the year, and one of them is ’Ranglers & Rhinestones,” a western-themed party 5:30-10 p.m. Nov. 17 at Rustler’s Rooste, 8383 S. 48th St., Ahwatukee.
Music, an auction, dinner and other activities are part of the gala.
