At Restoration House Ministries' 1,000 Women Strong Awareness Vendor Fair on Saturday, ladies will have the opportunity to shop for a good cause.
More than a half-dozen vendors, including Mary Kay, Ooh La La Boutique, Silpada Jewelry, Scentsy, Gold Buying Girl and Stampin' Up!, have donated products to the event to raise money for Restoration House's faith-based Victoria home for women.
"They're all donated products. Everything that's sold at the event is donated to Restoration House for programs in the home, operational expenses and materials for the girls," said Jennifer Martinez, Restoration House public relations representative.
Restoration House is a 6-month-long self-admitted program for women struggling with teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol addictions, and abuse. Restoration House provides a safe place for the women to seek help, and recover from their struggles using biblical principles.
The vendor fair is from 1 to 4 p.m. in Faith Family Church's Connection Center, and is free to attend.
Monies collected from products sold at the fair will be donated to Restoration House to help pay down operational and program costs for its residents, Martinez said.
"Restoration House gives our girls a chance to leave here whole, and go on to live happy and productive lives," Martinez said. "They leave here to fulfill their dreams that they never even thought they could do."
Tickets are available at the UPS Store, Teachers Tool Box and Blessed By the Gift.
