Call for vendors & donations: Respect Your Mother Furniture Restoration Event

Event: Respect Your Mother
Location: Sol Collective
2574  21st.
Sacramento , CA 95818
Date: May 10, 2014
Time: 10am-­4pm

Two local nonprofits, Vox Sacramento and Sol Collective, are co­-hosting Respect Your Mother, a fundraiser for a furniture restoration program they will be offering in the future. This will be an earth­-friendly event with eco-­conscious vendors selling their goods, local food and acoustic music.

They are asking for donations of small, unwanted furniture that local artists will paint and place in their live auction. There will also be a raffle that will promote local businesses and the artists community.

In conjunction with this fundraiser, they are also hosting a clothing drive where people are welcomed to drop off bags of unwanted clothing and linens that will be sent to California Clothing Recyclers. The  unwanted items are sent to wholesale buyers overseas and Respect Your Mother will be sent a  check for the amount recycled, which will go back into our program.

Respect Your Mother is putting an open call for anyone who wants to donate clothing, any artists  who want to paint the furniture, any eco-­friendly vendors who want to sell at the fundraiser, and any
local businesses who want to donate to the raffle and/or host a clothing drive.

Please help us spread the word! All communication can be directed to Amanda Branham at  mamabecrafty@gmail.com.

Stay tuned for an update as we get closer to the event!
