7B Women, Inc. holds benefit for Priest River Ministries Advocates for Women

SIP ‘N SWAP
7B Women, Inc. holds benefit for Priest River Ministries Advocates for Women.

By Patty Hutchens

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. It’s a harsh reality of life everywhere, and North Idaho is not immune.

But for victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence in our area, there is help through Priest River Ministries Advocates for Women. First formed in 2002 as a Bible study support group for victims, it has evolved into a nonprofit organization that has three shelters that can house approximately 20 women and children at one time.

For the second year in a row, 7B Women, Inc., formerly a subcommittee of the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce and now a standalone nonprofit organization, is hosting a Clothing Swap with all proceeds going to benefit Priest River Ministries Advocates for Women.

The Clothing Swap, which is sponsored in part by Alliance Title & Escrow and Vicky Jacobson and Teresa Lunde of American Pacific Mortgage, will be held at Tango Café June 15 from 5:30 to 8pm. The concept is simple, yet powerful.

Here’s how it works:

1. Choose five to 10 special, good-quality items to add to the swap.

2. Prior to June 12, drop off your items at any of the following locations: Washington Trust Bank (Fifth Avenue), Sandpoint Title Insurance in the Powerhouse Building and Columbia Bank.

3. Invite your girlfriends and make it a “Girls’ Night Out!”

4. Register Online at 7BWomen.com for $25 or pay $30 at the door. This year, your entry fee includes a glass of champagne when you arrive. There will also be a no-host bar provided by Ivano’s Ristorante.

5. Swap and sip on June 15. Doors open at 5:30pm; swapping begins at 6pm.

6. Take as many items as you like. Clothes will be organized by category and size. A few special items will be raffled off at the end of the evening.

You do not need to provide items to be able to attend.

Priest River Ministries is doing much to build relationships with women and encourage them on their journey of wellbeing. If you or someone you know is in need of their services, contact them at the Crisis Hotline number 208.290.6529 or their office number of 208.448.2800.
