(Loving Touch Press Release, Jan. 16, 2013)
Krista Johnston, fundraising chairperson of JFK’s PTA is trying to keep the “fun” in fundraising. A clothing swap is a great way to liven up a winter wardrobe, help kids and have a fun night in the process. Guests bring currently fashionable, new or slightly used ladies clothing, accessories, shoes, purses, jewelry, belts (no undergarments please) to The Loving Touch on Saturday, Feb 2nd. Friendly volunteers will arrange the donations while guests and indulge in desserts by local restaurants and receive free mini spa services by Ferndale’s finest women-owned establishments. Guests are then able to shop the clothing donations and take home whatever suits them for free! It’s a wonderful way to add items to your closet in a green fashion, without losing a bunch of green from your wallet. All leftover items are donated to a local women’s shelter.
There is a $20 cover charge for those guests and a minimum of 5 fashionable clothing items are needed to enter the swap. All door funds go to JFK’s PTA. Free mini services have been generously donated by local woman-owned businesses including make-up and nail polish changes by Rouge, chair massages by Essential Massage Therapy, henna hand art by Alchemy, hair by Flip. Psychic Readings are provided by Boston Tea Room for a nominal fee. Delicious desserts are provided by Pinwheel Bakery, Treat Dreams (our one male-owned business) and The Purple Kitchen.
The event will be held at The Loving Touch (22634 Woodward) in Ferndale from 6pm-9pm. Clothing drop off is from 6-7pm. Shopping will start at 7:30pm sharp. This is a ladies only, 21 and over event. Anyone with questions can contact Krista Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
