‘Accessory swap’ benefits local charities

Event held at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre in Abbotsford on May 4.

Sevenoaks Shopping Centre is holding an Exclusive Shopping Party and Accessory Swap on Saturday, May 4, with proceeds going to four local causes.

Tickets are $15, and participants are asked to bring up to five gently used items to donate to the event.

They will then be given vouchers, which they use to obtain “new to you” items at the swap tables throughout the event.

Clothing and shoes are also being collected for donation to Life Recovery, a women’s treatment centre.

The accessory swap also includes live music, food, door prizes and more. It runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the shopping centre.

Proceeds benefit Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, University of the Fraser Valley’s fashion department, Life Recovery and the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation.

Tickets are available at these groups, with $10 from every ticket sale going directly to them. They are also available online at brownpapertickets.com/event/374851.
