The twice-annual Greater Baltimore Medical Center Volunteer Auxiliary Nearly New Sale spring dates are quickly approaching.
The Nearly New Sale began more than 50 years ago at the former Hospital for the Women of Maryland, which merged with Presbyterian Eye, Ear and Charity Hospital to form GBMC in 1965. Sales have grown substantially over the years, with the semi-annual event (fall and spring sales) raising approximately $250,000 per year, all of which benefits patient care at GBMC.

Twice each year, GBMC volunteers devote their time and effort to the hospital's semi-annual Nearly New Sale, a most successful fund-raising event that contributes all of its proceeds back to the healthcare organization. GBMC employees, volunteers, and the general public get an opportunity to buy treasures, trinkets, and necessities from furniture, clothing, jewelry and silver to appliances, sporting goods, toys and games, and much more -- all at nominal prices.
Directions to the Nearly New Sales Building: Enter the GBMC campus via the Charles Street entrance. After passing the gatehouse, take the first left-hand turn, and then take the next left. Proceed to the top of the hill to the parking lot on left. Parking is free for shoppers.
