Florence Crittenton’s upscale resale store, Flo’s on 7th, presents its eighth Annual Heels for Healing and Diva Dash presented by the Florence Crittenton Auxiliary, MicroAge, Debbie Gaby Charities and National Bank of Arizona on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The event will benefit Florence Crittenton with all proceeds contributing to the agency’s life-changing programs for young girls, women and their families in our community, according to a press release.

“The popularity of this event extends beyond Florence Crittenton supporters and Flo’s on 7th patrons,” Chief Executive Officer Dr. Kellie Warren said in the release. “The incredible merchandise at unbeatable prices draws strong community support each year and as a result, strong foundation for the girls and young women that we serve. Whether it’s participating in the Diva Dash, shopping at Flo’s on 7th or donating your own items, your contribution helps fulfill our mission of providing safety, hope and opportunity to every girl whose life we touch”

The event delivers a one-of-a-kind shopping experience filled with fun festivities, food and low prices on designer heels and handbags. The annual Diva Dash returns to bring together friends, families, coworkers or any other members of the community to partake in a friendly competition to support a great cause.

The Diva Dash, starting at 8 a.m., challenges participants to slip on a pair of heels and obstacle course in Flo’s on 7th’s parking lot located at 4116 N. Seventh Ave. in Phoenix.

In teams of up to four, participants will compete in lanes filled with a tricycle and hula-hoop obstacle for the chance to win a Diva Dash trophy. Registration costs $25 per person with each registrant receiving a special tote granting them 20 percent off all purchases at Flo’s on 7th for an entire year beginning Sunday, Sept. 25.
