The traveling Britches and Bows boutique has set up shop at Vaughan Regional Medical Center to benefit the hospital’s auxiliary. But the deals won’t last for long, as the sale ends Thursday at 3 p.m.
The fundraiser has been done at other hospitals in Alabama but is new this year for Vaughan and Selma, according to Britches and Bows owner Jennifer Clark.
Auxiliary presidents Martha Plummer said auxiliary members thought the fundraiser would be fun and stylish and a good way to raise money.
“There are baby clothes along with stuff for little girls and boys. It’s all really cute,” Plummer said.
Women’s clothing is also available in all sizes as well as hats, purses, scarves and other accessories.
“The crowd and sales have been really good today,” Plummer said. “We hope it goes over well and is something the public likes.”
The sale started Wednesday morning in the medical tower and will run Thursday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Proceeds will be used to help the auxiliary give scholarships to students interested in studying healthcare and as well some planned renovations.
Plummer said the auxiliary would like to buy some art for the radiology department from the sale’s proceeds too.
“We’re going to have a photographer take pictures of the historic downtown area in Selma and have them framed, matted and hung in the radiology department,” Plummer said. “It needs to be spruced up.”
Kathleen Smith has been a regular customer of the hospital’s annual masquerade jewelry sale in the fall and said she enjoyed the Britches and Bows sale as well.
“They have some nice styles in here. I think coming to these sales is a great way to support the auxiliary,” Smith said.
“I’m very much in favor of all they do, and I love supporting them as well as getting good deals.”
