By Staff | Aug 21, 2020

Dress for Success SW Florida will host “A REcycled Night in Black and White” to raise funds to empower disadvantaged women in Lee, Collier and Hendry counties.

The virtual event is scheduled to stream live on 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 and 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.

The 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 Dress for Success SW Florida, 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,” Dress for Success SW Florida Executive Director Nickole Hendra said.
