Florence Crittenton’s upscale resale store, Flo’s on 7th, is kicking off its sixth-annual, one-day-only shopping event, “Heels for Healing,” set for 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27 at the store, 4116 N. 7th Ave.

Chaired by co-founder and president of Sleep America Charities, Debbie Gaby, the event will feature a large selection of designer, vintage, casual and dressy shoes and handbags at incredibly low prices, as well as a raffle drawing.

CEO of Florence Crittenton, Dr. Kellie Warren, said, “The popularity of this event extends beyond Florence Crittenton supporters and Flo’s on 7th patrons. The incredible merchandise at unbeatable prices draws strong community support each year and as a result, strong support for the girls and young women that we serve.”

Preceding the 10 a.m. store opening will be the second-annual Diva Dash Games, a series of high-heel relay games that bring together members of the community for friendly competition in support of the agency, sponsored by Picnic Specialties. The games will begin at 8 a.m. in the Flo’s on 7th parking lot, with check-in beginning at 7:15 a.m. Gather a team of friends, family or coworkers to participate in the games for a small $25 relay registration fee.

All proceeds from the event will directly support Florence Crittenton’s life-changing programs for young women and their families in the community. To register for the Diva Dash or for more information, visit www.floson7th.com.
