Dress for Success SW Florida (DFSSWFL) will be hosting “A REcycled Night in Black and White” to raise funds to empower disadvantaged women in Lee, Collier and Hendry counties.
A virtual event, A REcycled Night is scheduled to stream live on Thursday, Oct. 15 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. so that supporters can watch it from the safety and convenience of their home. With the community’s support, women who are survivors of human trafficking, domestic violence, residing in shelters and unemployed will receive professional attire for a job interview, counseling and career development tools to help them achieve economic independence.
This one-of-a-kind event will feature local designers that will showcase runway-ready ensembles crafted from bags of recycled clothing and accessories donated by DFSSWFL, a live and silent auction, Trash to Treasure, mystery swag bags and more. Sponsors will receive a watch party kit, a specialty dessert, a mystery swag bag and other surprises.
“I am excited that local celebrity auctioneer Rick Gallo will present our amazing offering of experiences for viewers to bid on and I would like to thank our Event Honorary Chair Christina Schwinn, a partner of Pavese Law Firm, for her ongoing support,” said Nickole Hendra, executive director of DFSSWFL.
Since opening in 2010, DFSSWFL has impacted and empowered over 3,500 women in Lee, Collier and Hendry counties. Its goal is to serve more women, provide more services and programs, and ultimately mentor them right into a job.
