KCRA is a local TV-station
in Sacramento. Every year they ask viewers and their website readers to vote on
the best businesses of Sacramento to make the "A-List". I belong to Assistance
League of Sacramento
which is a 40+ year old philanthropic organization that
provides many services to our community particular involving children (free
school clothes, free vision screening, teddy bears for kids in crisis at a
hospital, puppet shows in schools on relevant topics such as drugs and
bullying, college scholarships, etc…) and many other important services that are also helping
our local adults.

Most of the funding for our programs comes from our fabulous thrift
shop Second Season. A few months ago, we won "Best of Sacramento", which is a HUGE
honor in our community by our local Sacramento Magazine. Now we want to do the
same with this local TV station's "A-List". The more exposure we have
means more customers which means more sales and that means more funds to help those in need in our

Oh, and a cute tidbit: they
call our shop "the Nordstrom of thrift shops" as it's really nice
with really nice merchandise. I work there two days per month as a volunteer and
it's a blast!


Here’s what our chapter
shared with me today – Second Season is a nominee in the 2010 KCRA 3 A-List
contest. Voting began Monday, March 29th, and runs through Thursday, May
. So please login today and vote. Ask
