By Terri Lynn, SouthFloridaReporter.com, Managing Editor, July 7, 2015- For the second year in a row, Clothes Mentor Fort Myers and Clothes Mentor Naples will host a unique Sidewalk Sale to raise money for The Gabriel House, a loving and compassionate home for abandoned and medically needy children.
On Saturday, July 11, customers will be given a shopping bag that they can fill with as much fashionable merchandise as they can –all for $20 a bag.
The Sidewalk Sale will run at both stores on July 11 from 10 a-6 p with 100% of the sales going directly to The Gabriel House.
“We care about our children and the Gabriel House needs our help,” said Phil Baker, owner, Clothes Mentor Naples.
Last year, due to the remarkable success of the fundraiser, the stores raised over $7800 for Edward and Annie R. Ravish, founders of The Gabriel House.
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.
