Dress For Success New Orleans To Host ‘Shop For Change’ Fundraiser

NEW ORLEANS – On Saturday, Dec. 10 and Sunday, Dec. 11, Dress for Success New Orleans will host the “Shop for Change” Fundraiser, its 5th Annual Inventory Reduction Sale, at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk in the space formerly occupied by Aeropostale, near the Food Court on the 2nd Floor.

         Saturday hours are from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Sunday hours are from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

         “Throughout the year, we receive many beautiful items from the generous women in our Community,” Meaghan Bonavita, Dress for Success New Orleans Board President, said. “However, some items are not appropriate for our clients to wear during interviews or to work, and in some cases, we are overstocked in certain sizes. We have styles ranging from casual, to work and evening wear. This Shop for Change fundraiser will also raise more awareness about the many programs we offer that change the lives of our clients. And change is what Dress for Success offers – through a continuum of services as women transition from being unemployed and searching, to recently employed and adjusting, to gainfully employed and succeeding. And it all starts with a suit.

         “We encourage everyone to come out for amazing prices on terrific women’s clothing,” she said. “The event is a lot of fun and it supports a very worthy cause.”

         Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to almost 145 cities in 21 countries and has helped more than 925,000 women work towards self-sufficiency.
