On April 18, 2018, we will celebrate our 2018 Dress for Success “Be Bold Gala” in New York City. The Gala is the organization’s largest fundraiser and most prestigious event. Our goal is to raise funds to continue to help nearly 70,000 women annually, as well as bringing awareness of our mission for economic independence. This year, we celebrate women who no longer allow their past stories to define them. These women have authored new chapters in their lives, embracing and embodying a fierce boldness that has allowed them not only to succeed, but to pay it forward to the next woman. We have selected 10 women, Success Ambassadors, who sought out Dress for Success in a time of need. They have transformed into leaders in the workforce as well as within their families and their communities.
For the fourth year, Adrianna Papell hosted a special event called, “Cinderella Moment.” Our Success Ambassadors visited the showroom and had full head-to-toe transformations. With the help of the Adrianna Papell team and fashion stylist Martha Luna, they were able to try on an assortment of dresses and chose the perfect dress for their debut on the Dress for Success red carpet. After the Success Ambassadors selected their dresses, they are directed to the Kendra Scott station for beautiful jewelry. Next was hair by Dori Sligh and make up by Benefit Cosmetics.
Join us on this evening to celebrate the boldness of these wonder women and become an advocate for Dress for Success and its work to empower women across the globe.
