21 NOVEMBER 2009
2009 SL®  Footwear Expo to Benefit Toys for Tots
The expo is to benefit the Marine Toys for Tots foundation, which you can read about here: Toys for Tots org
Last year’s Footwear Expo was to benefit the ASPCA and ran from July 12 – 27, 2008. We raised $3000 CAD for the cause. This year’s event will benefit Toys for Tots and we hope to totally blow that $ out of the water this year!
The event will run from November 22 through December 6, 2009. Over 50 Shoe Designers from across the grid willl be showcasing their creations (some with new items introduced at the expo!) and helping to sponsor and support the benefit. In addition there will be a fashion show, musical entertainment, a photography contest and exhibit, a huge raffle, and a massive blow-out party at the end of the Expo.
