(XENIA, OH)—The Greene Community Health Foundation’s 2nd annual Fashion Swap ‘N Shop is scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Schindler Banquet Center in Xenia.

The Fashion Swap ‘N Shop is just that…a chance for women to come together to “swap” clothing and “shop” with a variety of businesses.  Clothing swaps are becoming more and more popular as Americans from every tax bracket are cutting back how much they spend on clothing in local retail shops. And with the focus on living “greener”, it’s a great way to recycle unwanted fashion items from outfits to accessories, such as jewelry, purses and shoes.

Women are invited to bring up to 5 new or consignment worthy clothing items of all sizes, including scarves, shoes, hats and jewelry to swap with other women.  The event, featuring a luncheon, style show and silent auction, also boasts over 30 different women’s home-based businesses including Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, Arbonne, Longaberger Baskets, Dove Chocolate Discoveries, Premiere Jewelry, Creative Memories, Avon, Scentsy, Thirty-One, PartyLite, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Lia Sophia Jewelry, BeautiControl, and many more.  Goody bags filled with various items will be provided to each guest.  One of the many items on the silent auction block this year is a 5 day-4 night stay in Cancun, Mexico, provided by Dreamtrips.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Clinic Cupboard housed at the Greene County Combined Health District in Xenia.  This cupboard contains basic over-the-counter medical supplies, baby necessities and personal products for GCCHD clients in need throughout Greene County.  All remaining clothing from the swap will be donated to Community Action Partnership of Greene County.

Reservations are due by Monday, October 18 and are $30.00 per person or $25.00 per person if reserving 4 or more women together.  The event is sponsored by Beavercreek Pediatric Dentistry, WDTN TV, Dr. Katherine Lin, IHS Pharmacy, MVP Video Creations, CJ’s Boutique, Evergreen Children’s Center and Greene Giving.  For more information or to make a reservation, please contact Laurie Fox at 937-374-5669 or email her at lfox@gcchd.org. The brochure is also available on the website, http://www.gcchd.org.
