Clothes That Work will celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the organization at the Fashioning Futures luncheon on October 24, 2013. This uplifting event features men and women client-models wearing gently used clothing from Clothes That Work. They will share their varied stories and backgrounds with more than 500 luncheon guests at Sinclair Community College’s Ponitz Center.
Clothes That Work provides interview appropriate clothing and personalized confidence building image services for men, women and teens who are preparing to transition from public assistance to employment. Once clients secure a job, they can return and select additional outfits to better prepare them for a new career. Clothes That Work also provides interview training skills, image workshops and practice interview experiences. Last year alone, Clothes That Work served over 800 job seekers.
Plan to join us for our 13th annual Fashioning Futures Luncheon on Thursday, October 24, 2013 at the Sinclair Conference Center from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. This event is the primary fundraiser for Clothes That Work and helps empower job seekers with clothing, education and opportunity as they move toward greater self-reliance and supports the unique role that Clothes That Work plays in growing the economic vitality of our community.
Clothes That Work will celebrate its clients’ successes, 15th year anniversary of serving the community, and applaud the vision of the founding mothers who sought to make a difference in the lives of individuals that ultimately established this valuable community asset.
This year’s luncheon is co-chaired by Andrea Hubler, Interbrand Design Forum, Pat Kanuckel, Victoria’s Secret Direct and Natasha Baker, NLB Communications.
The event is open to the public and limited sponsorship opportunities and individual tickets are still available through October 18, 2013.
