29 Retailers. 29 Charities. 1 Feel Good Shopping Day.
Ready to do a little shopping in Old Town and help 29 local charities at the same time? The Old Town Boutique District (OTBD) is pleased to announce a new community focused Spring event called Boutique Charity Day taking place on Saturday, May 14, 2011. This creative, small business driven event is staged to be the largest charity collaboration in the DC Metro area.
Each retail member of the OTBD has hand- picked local and national charities to support and honor on this special shopping day. On this day, retailers will create an activity or promotion in their stores that would benefit that charity of choice. For example, beauty boutique Bellacara will be hosting Stacy Boylan Day. Stacy Boylan, the store’s first ever employee, lost her life nine years ago to Cystic Fibrosis. Profits from that day will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Examples of participation include European bra fitting salon The Full Cup hosting a “Foundations for Success” new panties drive for Dress for Success, La Cuisine donating 15% of in-store and on-line sales to FreshFarm Market's food stamp program, Hysteria donating 20% of sales to Alexandria’s Giving Circle, to Periwinkle collecting gently used Spring/Summer suits, bags, shoes, accessories and jewelry for Suited for Change.
A complete list of each shops activity and charity is located at Old Town Boutique District.
