For all you AvenueInsider’s spending sometime out west in LA these days; Avenue darling and 90210 actress Shenae Grimes has added philanthropist to her resume with Spread the Heart, an organization focused on raising funds for relief after the horrible earthquake in Japan. This weekend Ms. Grimes and a few of her fashion friends will be hosting a pop-up sale at Rebecca Minkoff‘s new space on Hollywood Blvd. This is your chance to raid the closets and collections of Shenae, CFDA nominated jewelry designer Pamela Love, Wildfox Couture creator and designer Kimberly Gordon, Chrome Hearts’ Jesse Jo Stark, Alice + Olivia stylist Cleo Wade and NHL Hockey Player Sean Avery. All proceeds go to the Yoshiki Foundation America; a California-based relief charity set up by musician Yoshiki of Japanese rock band X Japan. So head out to Los Feliz this weekend and shop for a cause. I promise you, there’s never been a better excuse to open your wallets!
