On Saturday, July 9, the Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun Hospital will hold the first of four collection days to begin accepting items for the 78th Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15, and Sunday, Oct. 16, at Morven Park Equestrian Center.
Trailers will be located at both the Inova Lansdowne and Cornwall campuses from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 44045 Riverside Parkway, Leesburg, and 224 Cornwall Street, Leesburg, respectively. Donors will be guided to the trailer locations by red balloons. Donations may also be given through appointment.
Items sought for the sale include furniture, clothing, shoes, books, household items, linens, lamps, glass and china, sports equipment, antiques and art, but not large appliances or mattresses. Rare and valuable items are sought for the silent auction that will be held Oct. 15. To check what is acceptable, contact 703-771-2985 or review the guidelines online at LadiesBoard.org/rummage. Items should be packed in boxes with lids shut. Clothing should be packed in closed plastic bags. Tax receipts will be provided to all donors.
Monies raised through the annual sale go to support Ladies Board projects in the community. Each year, the Ladies Board contributes several hundred thousand dollars for special needs equipment at Inova Loudoun, and also awards more than $100,000 in nursing scholarships.
Future donations days will be on Saturday, Aug. 6, Sept. 10 and Oct. 1, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. To make an appointment, email RummageLadies@gmail.com or call 703-771-2985.
