Recap: “Shop for a Cause” at A Village Gift Shop

On Oct. 21, Cincy Chic hosted a “Shop for a Cause” event at A Village Gift Shop in Glendale to benefit the Pink Ribbon Girls. My friend Diane owns the store and she’s AWESOME to work with.

She’ll host a shopping event with anyone who’d like to, where she provides refreshments and a fab shopping experience (she has the BEST gifts and accessories!). You provide the people, and then she gives a portion of all sales from the night to a charity of your choice at the end of the night! It’s so easy!

We did something similar last year and it was a big success. This year, we wanted to do something that directly helps local breast cancer survivors during breast cancer awareness month. So, Diane and I put together this idea to partner with PRG (a great organization if you don’t know about them already — they provide house cleaning, meals… all the necessities of life… to local breast cancer survivors and their families, while they undergo treatments).

From the event, we were able to raise $350 for PRG and they got some GREAT exposure, too! Not only did they get to share with all our attendees some info about their organization, but they also got to promote on Q102, who was there at our event!

Make sure you “like” A Village Gift Shop on Facebook so you can find out about other fun events they’re hosting in the future! And give them a call at (513) 771-3927 if you’re interested in holding a charity shopping event with them! I definitely recommend it!
