Recently at the EmBe Tribute to Women event we were introduced to a lovely young woman who shared her triumphant story of moving from abject poverty, unemployment and hopelessness to the joyful, self-sufficient, confident person she is now. She credits her transformation to the support, education and counsel she received from Dress For Success.

Her story is but one of many, but truly speaks to the power of an organization whose goal is to break the cycle of poverty, which many women find themselves trapped in. Dress for Success has faith that every woman, when given the necessary tools and support, can and will be successful, not only in their working life, but in their personal and family lives, as well.

Those tools include professional attire, educational materials, and guidance from a network of dedicated women who proactively participate in their client's journeys to accomplishment.

To help this machine run smoothly they rely on a wonderful network of generous partners who donate time, talent, clothing and of course funds, to fuel the ongoing mission. One of those benevolent partners is Chelsea's Boutique, which is presenting the 4th Annual Style and the City Fashion Show on Wednesday (May 17), 2017 at the Icon Lounge, in Downtown Sioux Falls.

Doors open at 7:00 PM and until 8:30 PM you can socialize, shop, sip the signature drink, nibble on delicious appetizers and enjoy music from the tremendously talented Elizabeth Hunstad.

The runway show begins at 8:30 PM and from 9:30 to 10:30 PM the After Party is on with half-price drinks and delicious dessert bar.

VIP tickets are already gone, so hurry to get your event tickets online now! All proceeds go to Dress for Success to help them continue their life-changing work with women in Sioux Falls.
