Behind the Scenes: Gearing up for Diva 2012!

What do black paint, metal CD racks, Jo-Ann Fabric and Michael’s downloaded apps, foam board, Christmas lights, and yard after yard of fabric, all have in common? They’re part of a very special project at work! For the past few months, many Goodwill employees and volunteers have been very busy preparing for our Diva fundraiser next month. I’m on the decorating committee, and I was so excited to see some of the “ingredients” for our decorations today at the Machesney Park Goodwill store. Many of my co-workers on the committee work at the Machesney Park store, and they’ve been collecting various decorating items so that the Diva fundraiser and sale will be over the top with pink and black girly glamorous fun!

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Goodwill has an incredible fundraiser and dress sale weekend event each year, and for 2012, it will be on March 23rd and 24th. We will have a glitzy fundraiser on Friday to showcase the dresses that will be for sale on Saturday, and then we will turn around and sell thousands of dresses, shoes, jewelry, and accessories… all at the great Goodwill prices you love. Whether you’re planning a prom or bridal event, or even if you just want some new spring and summer dresses, we will have every style you can possibly ask for.

We’d love to have you attend the Friday night fundraiser event, as well as the Saturday sale. To learn more, please visit
