Last weekend Empowerment Resources Inc. treated young ladies to a ‘fashionista’ shopping spree event at Charming Charlie at the Avenues Mall. Participants entered the store after hours and shopped till they dropped in honor of excelling in and out of the classroom! A fashion expert was on hand offering consultations for the attendees.
