Harvest for Hope

If you’re a consistent DDR reader, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I often mention Bigley Shoes and Clothing. Bigley’s is our family business, that has been around since 1911! It has been a major part of my life since the day I was born. I’ve watched it grow from two stores into nine, and become more reputable then we ever imagined. My mom and her team (which I’ve just recently joined full-time again), have done an incredible job at bringing high-end fashion to a small town. They provide amazing customer service and have truly put their heart and soul into this business. However, beyond fitting, buying, selling, merchandising, etc., we believe contributing everything we can to support our community is just as important.

For a number of years Bigley Shoes and Clothing has produced an annual event in support of the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation. Not only does this event raise thousands of dollars for this amazing charity, it also provides a fun night of fashion, cocktails, and socializing, for women and men in and around the community.

The time has come once again for this event to take place. On Thursday, October 6th, 2016, Bigley Shoes and Clothing invites you to attend Harvest for Hope. The night consists of a delicious “Pink Carpet Dinner” and Runway Show, as well as a silent auction with numerous prizes to be won. Including a raffle prize of one pair of shoes (up to $200) every month for a year! And ALL proceeds will be going towards the Ross Memorial Hospital Breast Imaging Services. This year it is taking place at the Victoria Park Armoury in Lindsay, Ontario. Tickets are $60 per ticket, and can be purchased at bigleyshoes.com. It will most definitely be an event to remember!

Hope to see you there!

 

All Things Pink

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women (except for skin cancers) and about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. These women are our grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and friends. To support them and show them our love I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month with a roundup of stylish products that support the cause. Happy shopping!
