Little Beans Jeans Event Fundraising With Local Teens for Mission of Hope Haiti
Little Beans Jeans is excited to announce their children's consignment event and fundraiser for the fall season will be held September 21st-23rd at the Premier Indoor Sports Complex at 14261 Torrey Road in Fenton, Michigan.
Owner Jennifer Walton says that the last season's event in Fenton was a huge success, growing over 40% from the previous event, and anticipates a strong attendance this season. "We're excited to continue to bring this type of event to the Fenton area", says Walton. "In addition to the funds it will generate for Mission of Hope, the event will bring a wealth of gently used children's items to the area, helping local families in tough economic times", she adds.
These consignment events are designed to give the community access to children's clothes, equipment, and toys at a fraction of the retail cost, helping many families afford 'nearly new' clothes and toys for their children. The business provides an easy way for families in today's economy to make money while selling their children's outgrown items. Consignors earn 70% of the selling price!
September 21st will be the Facebook fan, consignor and volunteer presale from 4:00pm to 9:00pm. During the presale there will be a shopping spree giveaway for Facebook fans only. On the 22nd the event will be open to the public from 9:00am to 4:00pm and on the 22nd there will be a public 1/2 price sale open from 9:00am until 4:00pm.
"A primary focus of Little Beans Jeans is to provide an avenue for local families to help each other", says Walton. "It's really cool because local moms can help each other by consigning items they no longer need and finding great deals on the items they do", she adds.
Volunteers at the event will earn the benefit of shopping before consignors and before the event opens to the general public. "Volunteers are an integral part of this exciting event and are needed to work before, during and after", says Walton. "It's a great opportunity for teens looking to gain experience and skills in customer service and retail sales, while having a good time helping others", she adds.
"New to this event are fun attractions for kids like a bounce house and face painting", says Walton. "We really want to make this as enjoyable as possible for parents and children", she adds.
Little Beans Jeans will be helping raise funds for Mission of Hope by working with local teens from The Rock Church of Fenton. "The teens we're working with are really taking charge of the fundraiser", says Walton. "Some of them went on a mission trip to Haiti last year, met many people in need and came back with a passion to do more - we're excited to be a part of it with them", she adds.
Little Beans Jeans will donate $1 for every flat donation made throughout the event and provide the fundraising team with a large booth to share information about Mission of Hope, including details about their recent mission trip to Haiti. During the presale, shoppers will have the opportunity to purchase food and drinks as a donation to Mission of Hope. Other fundraising efforts include a bake sale and concessions.
Owner of Little Beans Jeans, Jennifer Walton is married with three children. She is a stay at home mom and launched Little Beans Jeans with the intention of helping local families in need.
