Florence Crittenton’s seventh-annual Heels for Healing is set for Saturday, Oct. 3, when new and like-new designer heels and handbags will be available for purchase at incredibly low prices during a special one-day shopping event.
This one-of-a-kind shopping experience at the Flo’s on 7th resale boutique begins at 8 a.m. with the Diva Dash, a fast-paced, high-heel relay race where community members have the opportunity to create a team, dress up and race to the finish line (entry fee is $25 per person).
Following the Diva Dash is a special VIP shopping hour, beginning at 9 a.m. Cost is $25 to get in on the early shopping event. Heels for Healing opens to the public at 10 a.m.
The proceeds from the relay race and purchases from Flo’s on 7th will support the organization’s mission and essential programs such as the Girls Ranch Group Homes, the Therapeutic Group Home, transitional living and community-based services. Proceeds will also support the Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona, a Florence Crittenton initiative, and the state’s first and only single-gender public school. These programs help girls and young women ages 10 to 21 discover their self-worth and empower them to become successful adults in the community.
Through Sept. 14, Flo’s on 7th will collect donations of new and like-new designer, formal, casual and vintage heels and handbags for the special shopping event. All donations can be dropped off at the resale boutique, 4116 N. 7th Ave., or at Florence Crittenton, 715 W. Mariposa St. For more information, call Amanda at 602-288-4555.
