Thrift store to support Brandon’s Goal

Jun 26, 2013

The Mukilteo-based Brandon’s Goal Foundation is opening a thrift store to support pediatric cancer research and families with children who have cancer.

Kris Forth, of Mukilteo, is the founder and president of the foundation dedicated to the memory of her son, Brandon Brauns, who passed away from cancer in 2010 at age 11.

After Brandon was diagnosed, his goal was to beat his cancer and help other kids at Seattle Children’s Hospital do the same.

He raised funds for his doctors, put up a lemonade stand to benefit kids with cancer and held a toy drive for the kids in the hospital at Christmastime.

After Brandon passed away, his Forth soon founded Brandon’s Goal. In addition to its many fundraisers, the foundation is opening a thrift store on Saturday, June 29.

Finding Treasures is a non-profit thrift store where you can buy vintage clothing, furniture, kids clothing and more in support of Brandon’s Goal.

Store profits will go to research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Providence Pediatric Hospice, and the Family Support Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

The grand opening sale at Finding Treasures, at 4114 198th St. S.W.  in Lynnwood, will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 29 and 30 in the store and the parking lot.
