Ladies if you live in an apartment in Lynchburg, VA, then get ready to shop for a cause. The Frocks 4 Freedom sale is tonight in Downtown Lynchburg. THis is where you can buy designer dresses for less!
The designer items were all donated. Most items are $5. There is a $1 table. High-end boutique items are individually priced, with nothing over $24.
Freedom 4-24 hopes to raise $5,000. A team from Lynchburg is going to Thailand in December. They'll use that money to buy more than two hundred women a night of freedom from working in the sex industry. The team holds Christmas parties for the women at a safe house.
"Letting them know, most for the first time, that just a couple of blocks from the red light district this exists,” said Johanna Calfee, event organizer. “So sometimes it takes weeks, sometimes it takes months, sometimes it's immediate. Often the next day following a Christmas party there will be several women who show up at the house saying they're ready to escape.
The sale is at Tresca from 6-8p.m.
