The Great Closet Cleanout has returned to the Okanagan. On Sunday, over 40 tables of ladies’ clothing will be on sale to raise money for local charities.

“This is a chance for ladies to update their spring and summer wardrobes while supporting local charities. Gently used ladies’ shoes, clothing and accessories will be available to purchase,” said event producer Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown.

The Bridge Youth Recovery House will receive a portion of the proceeds and any leftover clothing donated by the ladies will be going to Mamas for Mamas.”

The Great Closet Cleanout happens twice a year in the spring and fall. This year’s spring event will be the first event at regular capacity since the start of the pandemic.
