Dress for Success is More Than Clothes
I am proud to be a volunteer and a member of the board of directors for Dress for Success Southern Nevada since 2012. I first got involved because I was so impressed to see how the organization changes the lives of women seeking to start a career but just need a little help to make a good first impression.
So many of us take for granted having the right outfit or a closet with options. Yet, many women do not have professional attire appropriate for an interview or to start a career. And without the right outfit, you don’t feel confident about yourself. That is where Dress for Success Southern Nevada comes in – women have a place to go to get that right outfit and make their best first impression. But at Dress for Success, it’s about more than just clothing. We are committed to providing a woman with both the right interview outfit as well as with the confidence and tools to succeed in a new job and in life.
Recently, Dress for Success Southern Nevada held its third annual Champagne Luncheon and Fashion Show. This annual gala is one of the organization’s major fundraisers to support its programs that help women find employment and achieve economic self-sufficiency by providing professional attire, a network of support, and career development tools. This year, FFW helped Dress for Success Southern Nevada promote the luncheon to the local media and community. We worked with several of our retail partners, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Fashion Show mall and Ethel M Chocolates to introduce them to the organization and participate in the event.
Thank you to all of FFW’s clients, partners and friends who made donations or attended the event. It was a great success but we couldn’t have done it without your support! To learn more about Dress for Success Southern Nevada, please visit: www.dressforsuccesssouthernnevada.org.
