Suited for Success celebrates 25 years with Cirque du Success

Suited for Success / Dress for Success Miami celebrated its 25th anniversary in style with Cirque du Success on October 5 at Jungle Island. Over 350 guests danced and played the night away in support of Suited for Success’s programs empowering men, women, youth, and veterans to economic self-sufficiency.

The cirque began the moment guests stepped off the elevator and were greeted by the ringmaster. Throughout the night, guests were entertained by acrobats, magicians, and fortune tellers, tried their luck at the casino, and enjoyed the photobooths, cigar bar, and make-up touch-up bar by Ulta. Suited for Success founder and executive director Sonia Jacobson and late co-founder Barbara Tifford were honored with a proclamation presented by Miami-Dade County Deputy Mayor Maurice Kemp and Commissioner Sally Heyman before the night’s special guest performer took the stage.

Miami’s own Yoli Mayor (America’s Got Talent) wow-ed the crowd with new original songs and classics, bringing everyone to the dance floor with her performance. Tartara USA and DJ PeeWee kept the dancing going until the end of the night.

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.

Want to work with us?

The work of Suited for Success/Dress for Success Miami would not be possible without the support of companies, organizations, and other groups. While we are fortunate to receive donations of business clothing on a weekly basis, which helps suit our clients for their interviews, we also fundraise to support our employment skills training programs.

There are several ways you, as a company, organization, or group, can help support our program. Here are a few examples of third-party events (those hosted by an entity other than Suited for Success/Dress for Success Miami):

Have an event coming up?
Consider designating Suited for Success/Dress for Success Miami as the event’s charity beneficiary. This is typically done through donating a portion of ticket sales or event proceeds.

Work in an office with a strict dress code?
Many firms and companies (or even private schools!) with dress codes will occasionally host a “casual day,” which allows employees to dress down on a weekday for a donation to a specific charity, usually $5-$10. Check with your HR department to find out if your company would be up for this.

Are you a local business?
Host a “Suited for Success/Dress for Success Miami” day and donate a portion of the days’ sales while letting your clients know that you give back. Restaurants and bars can consider hosting a Young Executives for Success networking happy hour, which brings together Miami’s best and brightest young professionals.

Have another idea?
We are always open to new, creative, and appropriate ideas and partnerships.

Prior approval is required for all events and partnerships, at the sole discretion of our management team and Board of Directors. Suited for Success/Dress for Success Miami may, at its discretion, provide promotional support to third-party events, but cannot fund or otherwise host these events. Please contact Angeline Evans at at least 6 weeks before your event to begin the process.

Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with Dress for Success Miami and The Frieze Ice Cream Factory

Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with Dress for Success Miami and The Frieze Ice Cream Factory

In honor of National Ice Cream Month this July, Dress for Success Miami and The Frieze Ice Cream Factory have teamed up to offer a unique, custom flavor called “Taste of Success.” The owners at The Frieze carefully crafted this flavor to symbolize the path our clients take when they receive the support of Dress for Success Miami. From the chocolate, vanilla, and coffee flavors symbolizing the diverse backgrounds of our clients, to the marshmallows and chocolate chunks representing the “rocky road” that our clients have taken, the Taste of Success

During the month of July, customers will have the opportunity to taste success while giving back to the women we serve. The Frieze Ice Cream Factory will donate 20% of each scoop of Taste of Success purchased back to Dress for Success Miami. The funds raised will go towards our clients’ employment skills training program.

Our goal is to serve up 2,500 scoops of Taste of Success ice cream in July, enabling us to help five women with our full employment skills training program and professional attire for their interview.

“When ice cream translates into to generosity, it’s a beautiful thing,” says Sonia Jacobson, founder and executive director of Dress for Success Miami. “I know that’s why people will come out to try our flavor and help us reach more than 2,500 scoops.”

On Wednesday, July 27, 2016, from 6-9 p.m., Dress for Success Miami’s Hispanic Community Ambassador, Chiquinquira Delgado, Venezuelan TV personality, model, actress and renowned designer, together with celebrity fitness guru and author Adriana Martin, will host a celebrity scoop event. The event will take place at The Frieze Ice Cream Factory at 1626 Michigan Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139, and will be open to the public.

TOS Insta“It’s our way of saying thank you for the support and building additional momentum to raise even more awareness and funds for our organization,” continues Jacobson.

“I think the community will really enjoy the flavor profile we created with the Dress for Success Miami team for this month-long offer,” says Lisa Warren, owner of The Frieze Ice Cream Factory. “It’s a symbolic yet tasty combination. Events like this truly capture our desire to give back to the Miami community.”
