In May 1947, the Parents Association hosted a “White Elephant Sale” to help raise funds for the  construction of Phillips Gymnasium. Due to the success of that campaign, the Clothesline Sale was  established as an annual event to raise funds and promote camaraderie among the parents.

Click here for more about the sale's history.


Over the past six decades, the Clothesline Sale has raised millions of dollars for financial aid, faculty  development and capital improvements. It has served the local community, various charities and  enhanced the feeling of esprit de corps among the parents.


Pierson Gym, home to the Clothesline Sale, in now in need of renovation. In memory of the original sale, the goal of the 65th and final Clothesline Sale is to raise funds towards the construction of the new athletics facilities.
