Clean out your closet for Fashionably Conscious!‏

This September, Coconut Grove Cares will be hosting the third annual Fashionably Conscious to benefit The Barnyard Community Center. Fashionably Conscious is fashion fundraising sale, offering donated luxury-brand clothing and accessories from the most coveted closets in Miami. The host committee has already donated designer items from Chanel to Dior, Prada, Miu Miu, and more. 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to The Barnyard, which offers free after-school and summer programming and is a much-needed safe haven for over 250 children in the West Grove. Last year, Fashionably Conscious netted $20,000, but with your help, we’re hoping to double that this year.

This is where you come in! Join us by cleaning out your closet this summer.

Support The Barnyard by giving away that gown that has already made appearances at a few events or that old designer purse you haven’t used in years. A donation that raises $200 will buy school supplies for 10 children for a whole year!

What do you get in return?

Tax deduction on your donations
Free admission to the Fashionably Conscious VIP Preview Sale and Cocktail Party on September 18th at Mary Brickell Village
A great reason to go shopping and fill up your closet again!

Please help us spread the word and forward this email to your friends, family, and colleagues. The deadline to donate items is August 27, 2009.

Our Host Committee this year includes:

Sarah Arison, Ynoluz Bacalao, Maria Eugenia Baco, Suzy Buckley, Alicia Cevera, Margarita Codina, Lourdes Jofre-Collett, Karla Dascal, Ana Cristina Defortuna, Desiree Dubon, Jolie Souto Dueñas, Raysa Fanjul, Laura Garcia, Aida Levitan, Natasha & Lena Lowell, Mariana Martinez Menocal, Dede Moss, Daisy Oliveira, Darlene Perez, Amy Zakarin, and Judy Zeder
