One of D-C’s favorite organizations, Housing Works, is hosting its 12th Annual Fashion for Action fundraiser on Thursday, November 19th. There will be a shopping party (the best kind of party!) where attendees can get first dibs on designer apparel, accessories and merchandise. After, shoppers are invited to “dance the night away” at the Rubin Museum of Art at 6:00 PM. All proceeds will benefit Housing Works’ Youth Outreach programming. This program provides healthcare and support for homeless youth in Brooklyn that are at risk for HIV/AIDS.
For those unfamiliar with Housing Works – they have store locations all around New York City and it’s essentially a treasure-hunter’s dream. Personally I’ve snagged vintage Levi’s shorts, an Arts and Crafts era china cabinet, a 1950s vanity mirror and a “lady head vase.” However, people are known to walk out of the store with almost-new Jimmy Choo’s for $50. The deals are incredible, with all money going towards a great cause!
Here are the details:
