Smith Day

Save the Date! – Smith Day 2016

It may be spring, with a lovely summer still to come, yet we are looking forward to the hints of autumn that herald Smith Day! (Hint: there may be a Smith Day theme in that opening sentence). Mark your calendars now for Smith Day on Saturday, September 10th and plan to join us for this wonderful event – a day of friends, shopping, bidding, food, and fun to raise scholarship dollars for young women attending Smith. How can YOU help ensure that this year’s Smith Day is great?

  • Volunteer! Contact Stephanie or Brigid to offer your time and energy.
  • Solicit silent auction items and raffle prizes.
  • Bring your good quality clothes, antiques and such to the Depot (storage unit).
    Please no books this year and if an item is stained or has holes or is badly worn, please donate it elsewhere. We want to break the cycle of moving out over half of what we move in.
  • Invite friends and neighbors to join you for shopping and even for lunch!
  • Be there!

So enjoy these lovely warm Minnesota seasons and plan for a great kickoff to fall – see you on September 10th at the Hopkins Center for the Arts for Smith Day 2016!

For more information, to volunteer or for Depot (storage unit) directions or donation pick up, contact Stephanie Frost '77 or Brigid Brindley '86.

Smith Day

Date of Event: 
Sep 12 2015 - 9:00am to 2:30pm

Now entering its 81st year, Smith Day is the Minnesota Smith Club’s annual fund-raising event. Proceeds are deposited in our endowed scholarship fund, which provides scholarships for outstanding young Minnesota women. Funds are also used to support PRAXIS summer internships that allow students to gain practical experience in an area of special interest. Over the years our endowed scholarship fund has grown to an impressive $2 million+.

Smith Day 2014

Smith Day 2014: 80 Years and Going Strong proved to be just that. We had record attendance at our 80th Smith Day and luncheon (over 100 strong, the most in several years), and we were blessed to have at least 11 of our club members there who are in their 80s (see picture below). Each of them was honored with a corsage and a round of applause. We had overwhelming amounts of quality merchandise in Antiques/Household and Adult Clothes, and quite an array of options in Bakery, Silent Auction, and Books.

Smith Day 2010

Our 79th Smith Day, Great Escapes, was a wonderful success and fun for all. From the “Paris & Milan” room (women’s clothing) to the “Blackwell’s Bookstore” (books), wonderful finds and bargains galore were available to the astute shopper. As always, the Bakery (“French Quarter”) and the luncheon (“A Hillside in Tuscany”) afforded delectable treats. And the “Silk Road” (Silent Auction) was full to the hilt with treasures.
