The DSS features over 20 top designer clothing and shoe boutiques selling their end-of-season wares at liquidation-level prices, with many previewing their upcoming season looks at DSS-exclusive pricing. The District Sample Sale also features an open bar, hors d’oeuvres from our participating restaurants, a fashion-focused silent auction, raffle, goodie bag (with VIP tickets) and more.
Best of all, we’re an all-volunteer organization with 100% of our profits donated to our chosen charity and legacy charities each season. Over $240,000 has been donated to our charities since 2006.

Bringing high-quality arts education to families who would otherwise not have these opportunities, Sitar Arts Center relies on charitable contributions to ensure that no family is ever turned away because of inability to pay. With each and every generous contribution, Sitar Arts Center is able to provide young people in our community with the opportunity to discover and develop their gifts and talents in a safe and nurturing place.
