Dress for Success of the Palm Beaches will host its fifth annual Style for Hope Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 8 at the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion.
This year’s event chair is Michele Wilde, the director of conference services and event sales at the Breakers Palm Beach and a Dress for Success board member.
March 8 also happens to be International Women’s Day, placing additional emphasis on the importance of supporting, raising, inspiring and motivating women. “Given our mission of empowering women to achieve economic independence, what better day to hold our signature event than International Women’s Day?” Dress for Success Executive Director Mary Hart said.
Style for Hope is the main fundraising event for the nonprofit and its programs, such as Next Step, a 10-week job readiness course that teaches young women how to build a life foundation based on self-worth and gives them tools needed to secure a stable future.
This year’s luncheon will feature a champagne reception and silent auction featuring more than 60 items to bid on, as well as the popular Kendra Scott jewelry pull and pop-up shop.
A former Dress for Success client will share her inspirational story, allowing guests to hear how their support has a direct impact on local women.
Dress for Success of the Palm Beaches is an affiliate of Dress for Success Worldwide, which has served nearly 1 million women since its launch in 1994.
