The Clothes Exchange [SIV80]

by

5/15/08: Shop till you drop, recycle used clothing, socialize over cocktails AND raise money for a women's charity? 

Sounds too good to be true, right?  Actually, it's the 7th Annual Clothes Exchange.

In 2008, The Clothes Exchange was attended by over 450 women and together with local sponsors, they raised $30,000 for The Hicks Foundation.  Not bad for an event that began 7 years ago in the living room of event organizer, Leslie Halperin.

Allison Hicks, the founder of the organization was on hand to educate women about the dangers of cervical cancer which, if screened for with yearly Pap smears, is 100% preventable.

Location: Main Street Landing, Burlington Vermont
