A Bacardi “Night of Art + Fashion” officially kicked off Dress for Success Miami’s 25th Anniversary

On Saturday, October 6, The Bacardi Women in Leadership initiative hosted a “Bacardi Night of Art & Fashion” at the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora. The evening served as the official kick-off celebration for the 25th anniversary of Dress for Success Miami.

Guests were the first to preview pieces from the “Celia Forever” exhibit. VIP guests further indulged their senses in a private cognac, whisky and cigar lounge hosted by Bacardi brands and attended an exclusive fashion show featuring a Rene by RR collection, from famed Cuban fashion designer and Miami International University of Art & Design alumnus, René Ruiz. The fashion show was produced by Charlene Parsons, director of the Fashion Department at Miami International University of Arts & Design.

After the runway show, guests then gathered on the museum’s rooftop terrace for live music, passed hors d’oeuvres, sweet treats by Unique Designer’s Cake and witnessed a live mural painting come to life by Ecuadorian artist Alejandra Estefania.

Throughout the evening, the museum gave away tickets to the star-studded opening night of the new exhibit, along with museum passes and merchandise. Guests had the opportunity to bid on the silent auction and try their luck at a raffle.

The evening raised $14,000 for Dress for Success Miami. See the full photo album on Facebook >

 

 

Jewels for a good cause – Kendra Gives Back to Dress for Success Miami

Jewels for a good cause – Kendra Gives Back to Dress for Success Miami

“Jewelry is like the perfect spice; it always complements what’s already there.” – Diane Von Furstenberg

These words proved to be especially true at the Kendra Gives Back party on July 26. The event, which took place at the Kendra Scott boutique in Brickell City Centre, drew a crowd of about 50 young professionals that were eager to support the cause.

Those in attendance enjoyed drinks and sweet treats, courtesy of Kendra Scott, and learned about Young Executives for Success (Y.E.S!), a volunteer branch of Dress for Success Miami that strives to provide its members with volunteer, fundraising and networking opportunities to further our mission. Twenty percent of the night’s proceeds were donated to the organization.

Kendra Scott and the W Hotel South Beach also donated raffle prizes to raise additional funds for Dress for Success Miami. Overall, we raised $1,051, which will support Dress for Success Miami’s employment skills training programs for women.
