Funds raised support Lump to Laughter's Angel Fund. The Angel Fund supports women diagnosed with breast cancer, who are currently in active treament and have a financial need. Grants are awarded to assist with household expenses (Rent/Mortgage, Utilities, Gas, Grocies, etc).
The mission of Lump to Laughter's Sip, Swap and Shop is to raise funds to assist and support women during treatment of breast cancer, who have a financial need.
Thousands of NEW and Like NEW Swap items are donated prior to the event (Clothing, Small Furniture, Housewares, Toys, Sporting Items, etc). A Team of volunteers sort the items by category and display them (like a store). Attendees who have contributed to the Swap "store" are allowed to shop the "store" at no cost for the items taken. (Also included are close-outs from Monkee's, The Bra Shoppe and Touche in the "store")
Lump to Laughter's Annual Swap began in 2009 when a few women decided to get together with all their gently used items and just swap. A donation was taken for the charity. No other fee applied, simply swapping items unneeded. All items remaining were then donated to a shelter.
Wine, Beer and Catered food is served!
$5 and $10 Table offers Boutique close-outs from local retailers for purchase.
(High Tide Home, Monkee's, The Bra Shoppe, Touche)
Raffle items donated by local retailers/vendors
The Swap grew each year. Starting with 30 women and growing to 220 women in 2015 just by word of mouth. We fully expect to exceed 300 attendees in 2017. The event is open to friends of Lump to Laughter and their friends and is a FUN Girl's Night Out.
