Cornwall Ontario – The Fourth Annual Sock Sale in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall & District is back this August 26th, August 27th, and August 28th at the Agora Centre (Nativity Hall, 301 McConnell Avenue).
On Friday the sock sale runs from Noon to 4pm. On Saturday and Sunday the sock sale runs from 10am to 3pm.
Socks are $0.50 a pair, and tights and other miscellaneous items are $1.00 each.
“Richelieu Hosiery contacted us several years ago because they had surplus socks to donate. We had the idea of having a sock sale, and it became an annual event”, said Amanda Brisson who is the Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall & District.
All proceeds from the sale benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall & District.
“We raised over $10,000 and have sold thousands of socks every year”, Amanda Brisson recounts.
The community support for this fundraiser has been amazing.
“We love the community support for this event,” Amanda Brisson concluded.
