Shop for Harvey Victims: Goodwill’s Round Up
Goodwill has come up with easy ways to contribute to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Now through Tuesday, when you make purchases at Goodwill Industries-Suncoast stores, you’ll be asked if you’d like to round up the amount of your purchase to support relief efforts. The donations will go to the American Red Cross. If you don’t want to purchase anything, you can just donate cash at a Goodwill store. While it seems like the people affected could use new clothes and household items, right now those are too difficult to deliver, so monetary donations are more helpful. For store locations, visit goodwill-suncoast.org.
Seasons Change: Tailgate Party and Harvest

You’ll find new fall and Halloween wreaths, pumpkin and gourd centerpieces, seasonal candles, succulent arrangements, trendy clothing and jewelry, funky bohemian gifts and outdoor garden items. Show your team pride with one of the themed signs and wreaths, and get gourmet goodies and dips, jams and sauces for football parties. The first 50 customers who make a purchase of $25 and up will receive a swag bag. Parking is available at Julie’s and Anona United Methodist Church. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. (727) 517-8102.
Dalí Bling: The Art of Fashion
In what’s becoming a trend this season, the Dalí Museum’s upcoming exhibit, Dalí and Schiaparelli, celebrates fashion. Elsa Schiaparelli was a designer who was a contemporary of Dalí’s and often collaborated with him, exploring surrealist themes in her designs. Dalí also designed jewelry. Neiman Marcus is hosting a fashion show and private viewing of Dalí’s jewelry creations, tonight from 7-9 p.m. at International Plaza in Tampa. The jewelry is from the personal collection of Eleanor Morse, one of Dalí’s longtime friends who co-founded the Dalí Museum with her husband, A. Reynolds Morse. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at thedali.org.
