Making HERstory: 5th Anniversary Gala & Fashion Show
DATE AND TIME

Sat, April 22, 2017
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT

LOCATION

Four Points by Sheraton Richmond Airport
4700 South Laburnum Avenue
Richmond, VA 23231

DESCRIPTION
VENDORS: We cannot accept any additional jewelry, handbag, or accessory vendors at this time.
Join us on Saturday, April 22, 2017 as we celebrate 5 years of empowering women to achieve economic independence! The event will consist of a signature recycled fashion show, seated dinner, testimonials from our clients and plenty of inspiration. Dress attire for this event will be cocktail/evening attire.

Our hostess for the evening will be Richmond's favorite personality, Kelli Lemon

Making HERstory...
Our annual recycled fashion show is an amazing display of local fashion that celebrates the success of the women that Dress for Success Central Virginia serves and is designed to directly benefit our employment retention programs.
Each year Dress for Success Central Virginia provides hundreds of women with professional attire. All of our clothing comes from generous public donations. Occasionally, we receive donations that are not appropriate for work. However, we believe every article of clothing has a purpose. In 2012, we hosted our first Recycled Fashion Show and challenged local designers to create runway worthy designs from our collection of unworkable clothes.
What makes our recycled fashion unique is that this event forgoes the traditional fashion show format and challenges local designers to create high fashion garments using soiled, damaged, outdated, or unused clothing donations. Much like Dress for Success transforms the lives of women around the world, our designers transform these unsuitable garments into amazing works of art.
This year's theme; Making HERstory, is a tribute to the empowered woman, her power suit, and its ethos of confidence and success that have remained timeless and transcendent.
Sponsorship opportunities available. Visit https://issuu.com/dressforsuccesscentralvirginia/docs/making_herstory_2017_sponsorship_pa for more information.
Tickets are nonrefundable. Tickets and donations are tax deductible.

One more day before we have to for the sake of The Union, This City Upon a Hill, This Great Land of Ours called the United States of America at least pretend that we respect him even if through his words and actions he continues to disrespect us. Let us pray that his attention span increases from the 140 characters of his late-night Twitter rants to something that will reasonably allow him do his job well and run this country. We must collectively be the bigger person and support him as our president or we can all collectively put our head between our legs and kiss our butts goodbye. No we don't have to celebrate his inauguration. Yes we will hold him and the republican controlled Congress' feet to the fire at every turn. How he slipped in and won in the first place was capitalizing on how divided the country was. The divide and conquer strategy was in full effect and on steroids in the 2016 election. So, now we must accept the 2016 election results and Donald J Trump as president and move forward to make him a one term president. I know we can make it through four years of Trump and company. I'm not so sure about eight. Remember also my fellow Americans, midterm elections are coming on November 12, 2018. We can unite and vote some of these anti-progress Congress members out of office. Then march onward and upward to the 2020 elections. We've got a lot of work to do, but it will be exciting and rewarding. The country we may save might be our own.
