Get ready bargain shoppers! For the third year in a row, Clothes Mentor Naples and Clothes Mentor Fort Myers will host their highly anticipated Sidewalk Sale to raise money for The Gabriel House, a loving and compassionate home for abandoned and medically needy children.
On Saturday, July 15, customers can purchase a shopping bag to fill with as much fashionable merchandise as they can – all for $20 a bag. [See the video below suggesting how to “stuff” the bag] The Sidewalk Sale will run at both stores from 10 a-6 p with 100% of the sales going directly to The Gabriel House. All of the merchandise offered at the sidewalk sale is donated by the stores.
“We care about our children and the Gabriel House needs our help,” said Phil Baker, owner, Clothes Mentor Naples.
Fill a Bag for $20
Baker suggests that shoppers plan on arriving early to secure a place on line. “Last year the line started forming in front of our store an hour before the sale started. There were at least 50 women waiting to fill their shopping bag with clothing by Chico’s, Ann Taylor, Escada, Tory Burch, Eileen Fisher, Lilly Pulitzer and more,” he added.
“If you’ve attended this event in the past you, know how much fun it is and what great bargains there are. We encourage everyone to arrive early. Once the items are gone, the Sidewalk Sale is over.”
Due to the remarkable success of the fundraiser, both stores have raised nearly $20,000 for Edward and Annie R. Ravish, founders of The Gabriel House.
According to Ed Ravish, Director, The Gabriel House, the money raised from the Sidewalk Sale have been a, “life saver.”
“The funds we receive from Clothes Mentor have helped us cover monthly expenses and unexpected repairs to the electric system, air conditioning and septic systems,” Ravish said.
Clothes Mentor is a women’s resale store that features name brand clothing, handbags, jewelry and accessories. All day, every day, Clothes Mentor pays CASH on-the-spot, to purchase better brand-name “gently-used” women’s fashions and accessories.
The Gabriel House rescues children who have been abandoned, discarded and who are in need of medical treatment. The vision is to rescue, rehabilitate and help these children reach their highest level of independence and functioning.
