All proceeds go to children’s programs in Beacon area
The Wee Play Community Project’s ninth annual Ree-Play Sale, selling gently used children’s clothing, toys, equipment, etc., is set to be held on Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Sunday, April 28, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the University Settlement Park Theater, 724 Wolcott Ave., in Beacon. Proceeds of the sale will benefit continued maintenance of the playgrounds in Beacon as well as support other kid-friendly organizations in the area.
The Wee Play Community Project is a group of creative and interested parents, grandparents and other caregivers dedicated to finding and creating imaginative and fun ways for Beacon and the Mid Hudson Valley to become more parent- and child-friendly. The cornerstone of the organization is working alongside the City of Beacon Recreation Department, assisting the department in maintaining all of the city’s playgrounds through financial and volunteer support.
“We decided to make this our annual fundraiser because it really is such a win-win-win event,” said the Ree-Play Sale Director Raquel Verdesi. “Donors get the opportunity to clean their closets and do something positive for the community; the people who come to the sale get fantastic deals on stuff they really need; and the Wee Play Community Project benefits by raising cash to support its programs — and we have a lot of fun doing it.” One hundred percent of the proceeds go back into the community.
The Wee Play Community Project is a fund of the Community Foundation of Dutchess County. More information about the group can be found at weeplayproject.org.
