The 4th Annual Flint Hills Resources Swap-O-Rama is a community wide clothing, shoes and accessories swap for both genders and all ages.
This event is a fundraiser for Green Star of Interior Alaska, a local nonprofit. Green Star promotes and preserves a healthy Alaska by encouraging and enabling our community to reduce waste and increase recycling.
Clean out your closets and find those pieces that you just never wear, that are too big now that you lost weight, or just don’t go with your newest shipment from Stitch Fix. We have begun accepting items at our warehouse on 1205 1st Avenue across from the Aurora Energy power plant. We will be available to accept your items Monday through Thursday from 9am to 3pm (with a break for the holidays from December 18th thru January 3rd). Please ring the doorbell and we’ll be there to assist you!
Swap will start promptly at 11am on January 20th. For $15 (with no donation) you are welcome to grab all the items you want that fit in a bag provided by our sponsor Flint Hills Resources, extra bags are an additional $5. People who donate clothing get in for $10.
The 4th annual Swap-O-Rama will feature a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction featuring items from our local business community. Bring cash for the 50/50 raffle. Silent auction winners can make payment by cash or card.
