Next Thursday, November 3, Baltimore’s most fashion-minded – and generous – residents will descend upon the Library Carriage House at the Evergreen Museum for the Best Dressed Sale & Boutique Preview Party.
The party, which runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., gives guests first crack at the Best Dressed Sale’s selection, which includes a wide range of gently worn clothes and accessories.
The selection will feature casual, corporate and dressy fashions, accessories, handbags, shoes and jewelry from dozens of fabulous designers. Brands like Prada, Lilly Pulitzer, Michael Kors, Tahari and Ralph Lauren will be well-represented and available for a fraction of the retail cost.
The sale itself runs from Friday, November 4 through Sunday, November 6 and entrance is free. Preview Party tickets are $55 and offer the first glimpse of what’s for sale.
This Best Dressed Sale has been a popular event since its inception, back in 1967. The sale raises funds for The Women’s Board of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, an 89-year old non-profit, all-volunteer board that raises and allocates funds for grants and scholarships within the hospital.
Money raised by the Board fully funds two scholarships – one for the School of Nursing and one for the School of Medicine – and funds projects selected by the Board via grant application process.
In 2017, Women’s Board grants will total about $750,000 and will help fun projects including studies on fetal neurodevelopment and the purchase of fleece jackets designed for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. In the years since its founding, the Women’s Board has contributed millions of dollars to the hospital.
