A Long History of Gorgeous Clothes, Great Deals and Good Works

The Women’s Board of 
Johns Hopkins Hospital

Since 1927, The Women’s Board of the Johns Hopkins Hospital has been a life-changing fundraising institution and force for good in the Baltimore area and beyond.

Over the last five decades, the Women’s Board has supported patient care and medical and nursing education by raising millions of dollars. This year marks the volunteer nonprofit’s 50th anniversary, and they show no sign of slowing down. In 2017, the organization has awarded nearly $1 million that has been used to improve patient facilities in the emergency room and the intensive care unit at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and for scholarships at the Schools of Medicine and Nursing. In addition, a $2 million capital award will contribute to building the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center.

The Women’s Board accomplishes its good works through the generous support of donors, a complete list of which can be seen on the Women’s Board website. In addition to contributions, the Women’s Board also raises funds through a variety of annual events, one of which happens this year in November.

Fashionable high-end clothing, shoes and jewelry will be on display and up for grabs at the annual Best Dressed Sale. This fun, high-energy event runs from Friday, November 3 to Sunday, November 5, but you can sneak a peek at the Preview Party Fundraiser from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, November 2. The Preview Party is open to the public, but there’s an admission fee; the Best Dressed Sale itself, however, has no admission charge. It’s all happening at Evergreen Museum & Library Carriage House, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

If you like gorgeous clothing—and a great bargain—don’t miss this event!
