SHOP FOR A CAUSE !!!
On Saturday, April 6th, 2019, from 11AM - 5PM, I will be hosting, planning, and styling my FIRST-EVER charity-driven event on behalf and in honor of two carefully chosen non-profit organizations that I strongly believe in: (1) Utopia Feni of Virginia Beach, VA due to their strong commitment and efforts at creating a safe, creative, and inclusive space for the Hampton Roads Community and (2) Doctors Without Boarders /Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) due to their long commitment and tenacious efforts at aiding refugees in the Middle East as well as providing support for numerous countries all over the world.
This event is FREE and welcomes EVERYONE regardless of race, gender, religion, socio-economic status, disability, and sexual-orientation. The deeper goal I aim to achieve at this event is to strengthen and uplift the community by bringing everyone together—under one roof—in unity and solidarity.
At this event, I will be selling over 200+ pieces of gently-used in-season clothing (i.e: formal and summer dresses/ professional work attire/ work-out gear etc.) that come in various sizes and include name brands such as: Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, New York & Company etc. I am selling ALL clothing items at an affordable rate for everyone: $10 or less for all clothes (with the hopes of selling out). I will also be selling a few items I picked up from my travels:
Additionally, I will be holding a raffle from 11AM - 2PM and donating a prom dress (see image below) from All the Rage, retailed at $500, FOR FREE, to a young woman in need (dress is a size 2)
33% of my proceeds will go directly to Utopia Feni and I aim to obtain $300 in donations for Doctors Without Boarders: https://events.doctorswithoutborders.org/campaign/Hippy-Dippy-Gypsy--Sip-N-Shop- .
I will be doing this event in collaboration with Culture Coffee & Tea Bar, enjoy some good vegan eats and if you purchase a coffee or tea you will receive an additional 5% off your ENTIRE purchase.
