Dress for Success Tallahassee partners with TCC Career Center on fashion consignment sale to benefit women

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.

For information or to volunteer to work at the sale, please call (850) 656-0181 or e-mail tallahassee@dressforsuccess.org.
