Over One Thousand Jackets, Tops, Pants, Skirts and Dresses Ready at $10 Each For Rose Brooks Benefit

Kansas City, MO – In the basement of World's Window in Brookside, as far as the eye can see, racks and racks of new and gently used women's clothing are freshly pressed and sporting ten dollar price tags. Over one thousand garments, just waiting for the start of the 9th annual "Flipping Favorites" shopping benefit for Rose Brooks Center.

On Thursday, May 8, World’s Window invites the community to attend its “Flipping Favorites” shopping event from 6 to 8 p.m. to support Rose Brooks Center. 100% of the proceeds generated from this event will benefit the women and children (and sometimes their pets) using Rose Brooks Center’s services.

It will be an evening of fun and fashion with music, champagne and a Red Carpet! Tower Cleaners has continued its nine year partnership with World’s Window by donating minor cleaning services for donated clothing in need of a touch-up.
