Shoppers of all ages will delight in the broad array of treasures, collectibles, antiques, clothing, furniture and home goods available at the Elsie Stuhr Center’s annual Harvest Bazaar.
The annual fundraiser – to be held Thursday, Sept. 7 (9 am-6:30 pm), and Friday, Sept. 8 (9 am-4 pm) – will also provide visitors an opportunity to purchase donated baked goods from the Stuhr Café.
Virtually every room at the Stuhr Center (5550 SW Hall Blvd, Beaverton) will overflow with donated items, converting the center into a giant rummage sale. Donations for the sale will be accepted at the center until Sept. 2.
Proceeds from the center’s largest fundraising of the year will help fund future Stuhr Center programs, events and scholarships.
“Our community’s dedication to this event is inspiring,” said Karin Madsen, program coordinator at the Stuhr Center. “Volunteers diligently sort and price items and build our displays, and our patrons donate an incredible supply of unique items, including jewelry, vintage items, clothing and collectibles. The sale really does provide something for every shopper.”
Operated by the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, the Elsie Stuhr Center is Beaverton’s only community center dedicated to serving the needs of the “55+ and better” population. THPRD staff aim to help aging adults maintain good health, independence and well-being with hundreds of classes, programs and community events each year.
