Accessorize Me in Dubuque is hosting a weekend-long event to raise money for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City. The event begins today, April 28th, and runs through Tuesday, May 3rd.

During those days, 25% of your purchase at Accessorize Me will be donated to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. You'll also have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for your chance to win passes to the Hawkeye Ladies' Football Academy! Those two passes combine for a $1,100 value!

Each raffle ticket is $10, or three for $25.

On Saturday, Accessorize Me will be firing up the grill for a tailgate. You can enjoy delicious brats, hot dogs, as well as in-store specials, all in support of a wonderful cause!

Kristina of Accessorize Me stopped in studio on Thursday to discuss all that will be happening, as well as what Accessorize Me is all about. Of course with Mother's Day right around the corner (May 8th, mark your calendar!), she mentioned the gifts they have that your mom would love.

"[Accessorize Me] is a boutique with a wholesale [....] and retail division. [In] our retail division, we have a lot of fun things for mom," Kristina said. "We have clothing, jewelry, handbags, anything mom could want."

Kristina also sent a message to dads if they're struggling to find the perfect gift for their wife. Accessorize Me has a kids station, which could be the "X" factor in helping your children find something perfect.

"If you're trying to find something for mom, you can bring your kids to the kids station [where] they can make a card for mom," Kristina added. The kids station also has a variety of other crafts and baskets.

Accessorize Me is located at 2794 University Avenue in Dubuque. You can find out more information about this multi-day event on their Facebook page!
