TALLAHASSEE, FL (March 25,
2014) — Dress for Success Tallahassee, a nonprofit
affiliate of Dress for Success Worldwide, is partnering with the TCC Career
Center on a fashion consignment sale that will raise funds to expand services
for Dress for Success Tallahassee clients and offer a unique opportunity for
low-income women throughout the community to update their wardrobes.
Dress for Success Tallahassee provides free, new and gently used professional
attire to low-income, unemployed and underemployed women who are interviewing
or newly employed. Dress for Success Tallahassee works with more than 16 client
referral partners, including TCC. Although this is not the organization’s first
fashion consignment fundraising sale, this will be the first time that a client
referral partner has hosted the sale.
“The Tallahassee community has embraced us
and made it possible for us to suit close to 600 job-ready women since August
of 2010. The clothing donation support has been so wonderful that we are unable
to store all of the items in our boutique. The fashion consignment sale is not
only a great fundraising opportunity for us, but also another chance to give
back to the community,” said Wendy Hedrick, Dress for Success Tallahassee
founder and board chair.
“We are very excited to partner with such a
great organization and to offer this opportunity to our students,” said Catie
Goodman, TCC Career Center director. “It is very important for our students to
be able to find affordable, professional clothing for their career endeavors.”
The sale will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on
Friday, April 4, and Saturday, April 5, at the TCC Student Union Ballroom.
Cash, check and credit card will be accepted. All sales are final at the time
of purchase. Proceeds will go to fund
the Dress for Success Tallahassee boutique located on East Park Avenue.

the sale, please call (850) 656-0181 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
