80 ~ That’s how many pairs of shoes I have in my closet! I guess I am addicted to shoes. Are you? Sadly, it is not the case for many Spokane kids from much less fortunate families who go to school in flip flops all winter long! That’s why the Mermaids of the Lake created this exciting Spokane shoe event on August 11, 2011, If the Shoe Fits… Wear It!, the shoe extravaganza of a lifetime to benefit a worthy cause locally.
If you missed the show this year, you missed an exciting event, with Spokane models showing off clothing from local boutiques and many talented local dancers and artists who donated countless hours of their time for the cause, but you haven’t missed contributing to this great cause. The purpose of the event was to collect as many new pairs of shoes as possible to give to the children and teens in need in our community, and the shoes will still be collected until the end of August in many drop off locations.
Should you want to be a part of next year’s event, there is more than one way to be involved and contribute. You can simply attend the event. You can be a sponsor or a vendor, a model, or an artist. You can purchase and donate a pair of shoes, and put a happy smile on a Spokane Kid’s face. Or you can simply help spread the word!
Together, let’s see how many more pairs of shoes we can collect to cover the bare feet of Spokane kids!
