Shoes, Toys, Charity - This Saturday

One of our favorite local shoe retailers is having a benefit this Saturday. Simplysoles.com is holding a toy drive for Dr. Bear's Closet and giving 20% of the shoe selection to participants:

On Saturday, December 5th from 12:00 until 5:00 p.m., SimplySoles.com will host a toy drive for Dr. Bear's Closet at Children's Hospital. Fashionistas and the charitable-set will bring new toys, games, and books to fill Dr. Bear®'s Closet, which ensures that every patient has a gift for holidays, birthdays and most importantly, a little something to serve as a reward for their courage in fighting an illness. The closet provides items to thousands of patients who are treated in Children's inpatient unit, Emergency Department and Regional Outpatient Centers, and the Health Centers.

In addition to making their donation and taking time to give back to those less fortunate, attendees will enjoy a 20% discount on all purchases, hors d'ouevres from CommonWealth Gastropub and sip champagne from Barefoot Bubbly, as they browse the best shoes of the season at Kassie Rempel's SimplySoles.com showroom. Courage for Kids is inviting their supporters to contribute to this worthy cause. This is the true spirit of the season.

The event is complimentary, however attendees should bring a new toy or make a donation to Courage for Kids.
