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.

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 angeline@suitedforsuccess.org at least 6 weeks before your event to begin the process.
