Hey everyone, have you done some spring cleaning this year?
We all have a top collecting dust in our closet. Or the a pair of shoes that we've forgotten about. What about that necklace you've been meaning to wear but just haven't gotten around to it yet? Well, if any of what was just said resonates with you, you've come to the right place--Gather is putting on a good ol' fashion clothing swap!
Bench Accounting has kindly offered their space for us again and this time we'll be lining the tables with your clothing, shoes, accessories--really, anything in good condition that could use a new home. Bring bags of clothes that you want to give away and then fill 'em with something new! Whatever is left at the end of the night will be donated to Dress for Success, along with all ticket proceeds from the event.
All proceeds will be going to Dress for Success. The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
To donate, volunteer or find out more about them check out their website at https://vancouver.dressforsuccess.org/
Doors will be open from 6:30pm and elevator access will be available until 7pm. We ask that you get to the venue during the alotted elevator access time. In the case that you arrive a little early or late, we will have an organizer checking the entrance 15 minutes before and after the set times.
A Dress for Success representative will be kicking things off by introducing their organization at 7:30pm, with the clothing swap commencing right after!
Tickets start at $10 and we ask that you bring clothing donations including tops, bottoms, outerwear, shoes, jewellry (no earrings, please!), and accessories (hats, scarves, gloves, bags). No undergarments or swimwear.
Please bring a reusable bag for bringing home all your new goodies!
If something comes up and you're no longer able to make it, please release your ticket on Eventbrite. This will allow someone else to take your place.
There will be self-serve refreshments for guests.
