it may sound like pure indulgence–teams of shoppers on a mission to spend the most at the broadest range of stores, drinking and snacking their way from purchase to purchase–but behind that splash of cash, smiles and ridiculous fun is a very, very serious cause. this weekend, Sept 13-14th, people will flock to Fredericksburg to ‘shop for a cause’, with proceeds benefitting the Boys & Girls Club of Fredericksburg.
yes, they’ll have an incredible weekend amongst dear friends, old and new. and all the while they will be supporting an incredible organization that gives kids a great, safe and supportive place to grow, play, learn and just be themselves. so many kids have benefitted from the services of the boys & girls club, including stars like Cuba Gooding Junior. click here for a quick story on how the boys & girls club helped him on his way to a better life.
the stores in town are revving their engines for this year’s shopping tournament event and red is so proud and excited to take part. we can’t wait to see all the team costumes! we’re looking forward to those teams that create their own team song… and we’re just thrilled to be part of such a meaningful event for our community!
there is still time to sign your own team up for this crazy fun – and very seriously important – weekend event. grab your best guys and gals – decorate those last rooms, don a great bag full of jewelry and bags or just do you holiday shopping early this year while giving kids like these the possibility of a brighter future.
we hope to see you this weekend! we can’t wait for this meaningful fun to begin!
