Members of Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society’s Kwatcha Group will host their 30th linen sale this weekend at First United Church in White Rock – and if past sales are any indication, it will be busy.
“We’ve been doing it for a long time and it’s quite a successful fundraiser,” said Diane Perrie.
“They come from the Island, they come from North Vancouver… they watch for it. They start lining up probably at 8:30 (a.m.).”
The sale is to run from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday (Nov. 7) and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday (Nov. 8), with items to include collectibles, linen, doilies and more.
Perrie said a recent tally puts funds raised for the hospital through the linen sale alone at more than $130,000.
“That’s quite a sum of money,” she said. “I was quite surprised when I added it all up.”
First United Church is located at 15385 Semiahmoo Ave.
