NIH: 3-Hour Holiday Boutique


NIH Auxiliary hosts Hall Sale Boutique

The Northern Inyo Hospital Auxiliary is extending its successful Holiday Boutique with a three-hour Hall Sale this Friday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m. to noon, in the hospital’s Main Lobby.

The sale is designed to give the public one more chance to get some of the Auxiliary’s handcrafted decorations or gifts while helping to raise funds for equipment purchases on behalf of Northern Inyo Healthcare District.

Shoppers can expect a 20 percent discount on boutique items and 25 percent off selected NIH Gift Shop items. Also, while not discounted, a selection of holiday-wrapped See’s Candy will be available.

“We had a lot of cute items left over so we thought we’d make one more offering so we could start fresh for 2018,” said Judy Fratella, Auxiliary President. “This is the first time we’ve opened the Hall Sale to the public, so we are quite excited to see how it goes.”

Fratella notes that hospital employees, always big supporters of the Auxiliary’s efforts, will have a
private shopping opportunity one hour before the sale begins. “We wanted to give the employees, especially those who worked the day of the boutique, a chance to participate as well.”

The purpose of the NIH Auxiliary is to render service to the hospital and its patients through ways
approved or proposed by the Governing Board of the Northern Inyo Healthcare District. Founded in the early 1960s, the Auxiliary has given more than $500,000 toward equipment purchases for the hospital.

The Auxiliary raises its funds through its hospital gift shop sales and Holiday Craft Boutique. Anyone with questions about the Hall Sale, or who is interested in joining the Auxiliary, may call Sharon Moore.
