Chic Meets Cheap for Urban Mission Benefit


Burberry, Versace, and Lily Pulitzer - Those are just a few of the brands that were being sold to help the Watertown Urban Mission in a unique boutique at the Black River Valley Club Saturday.

Suzanne Timerman and the Tri-County Women's Council of Realtors sold new and gently used designer clothing and accessories for very low prices.

Timerman calls herself the personal trainer to the rich and famous in Greenwich, Connecticut, and she decided to help out the Urban Mission by getting together all of this stuff. 

"My clients and friends donated all the clothing and accessories, either from their own closets or from their own businesses, and that was it. It was very simple," Timerman said.

"The hardest part was trucking it all down here," she laughed.

The Watertown Urban Mission's Drew Mangione said sales were through the roof:

"We don't have a tally just yet, but it's been one of our most successful fundraisers for sure," he said.

All proceeds from the sale benefit the Urban Mission, which provides basic human needs like clothing, food, and shelter at its Factory Street location.
