The second annual Dress Up For St. Jude event has been set for Oct. 6. The special evening will showcase an array of new and gently-used fashion items for sale just in time for fall award shows, holidays and more.
The special sale is scheduled from 4-8 p.m. at the St. Jude Nashville office at 1102 17th Ave. S., Ste. 300, and all proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for their music therapy program.
The event was founded in 2015 by four music industry friends following an inspiring visit to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
Last year’s Dress Up For St. Jude offered dresses, handbags, jewelry and more at a fraction of their original prices. Event organizers are asking artists and music industry executives to clear out their closets, and donate the following items:
– New/gently used dresses of all shapes, sizes and styles from casual to formal;
– Celebrity dresses;
– New/gently used jewelry, accessories, shoes
– Clothing racks to display dresses
The St. Jude music therapy program helps patients attain emotional goals, such as learning to express themselves by writing and performing songs and discussing song lyrics. Creativity also helps patients cope with disease and its treatment. A clinical and evidence-based practice, music therapy can be used to achieve both musical and non-musical goals.
