Janet Pereira organizes clothing sale to help Brampton hospital
Pregnant moms looking for designer maternity wear without the expensive price tags can select from hundreds of styles at an upcoming fundraising sale.
On Saturday, Nov. 20, a designer maternity wear factory direct warehouse sale is being held at Centennial Recreation Centre.
More than 1,500 designer clothing items will be discounted from 25 to 90 per cent off the regular retail price.
What makes this event even more special, said organizer Janet Pereira, is 50 per cent of the profits from the clothing sale will be donated to Brampton Memorial Hospital's Pediatric Ward.
As a mom herself, Pereira knows how important this hospital ward is for young families in the Brampton and Caledon areas.
"It's my hospital and I have had to take my son to the pediatric ward before."
Help kids be more comfortable
Through her experience Pereira saw, first hand, how excellent the nurses and staff were but how simple things like more toys could help make a sick baby feel a little more comfortable.
"Women who are pregnant have a vested interest because, heaven forbid, their children one day might have to be in the pediatric ward."
By combining a designer maternity wear sale with a fundraiser, Pereira hopes the event will be successful for everyone.
Brampton Mayor Susan Fennell, Ms. Canada Royalty 2004 Veronika Tkach, and representatives from Brampton Memorial Hospital will be on hand throughout the afternoon to greet some of Brampton's expecting moms.
Anyone wishing to volunteer and help with the maternity wear sale can contact Pereira at 647-223-8109.
The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Centennial Recreation Centre, 80 Mary St., in downtown Brampton.
