At Goodwill, We Are All Abuzz About The Bee!

Queen Bees at Goodwill Selfie Booth!


In just a few weeks, the 2019 Queen Bee Half Marathon will take flight and Goodwill is ready for the big launch! As a Royal sponsor of the 2019 event, Goodwill’s team of worker bees are buzzing away putting the final details together for the debut of the very popular and recently expanded ” Bee-Tique” at the Expo on Friday, October 11th! The Bee-Tique will feature an assortment of athleisure and running gear at unbeatable prices as well as the buzz-worthy and oh so fun, ” Selfie” station right next door.

This year’s Queen Bee looks forward to more than 6500 participants and all will have a chance to visit the Expo and the Goodwill Bee-Tique on Friday, October 11th. Busy bees should fly by the Goodwill exhibit booth to find out how to win a luxurious spa pampering basket truly fit for a Queen. Hint: If you’re a “˜good bee’ you can bring a donation and receive a chance to win a bee-u-ti-ful spa pampering basket. Also, if you are a busy bee shopper and spend more than $20 in the Goodwill Bee-Tique, you could be entered to win as well. The lucky winner will be announced Saturday, October 12th at the post-race party.

Team Goodwill is also in training getting ready for this year’s big event. Athletes from the organization’s Retail division as well as Marketing and Services departments will be flying around the course on Saturday morning.
