AFTER A YEAR full of twists, turns and adaptation, Dress for Success Houston thought it was finally time for an in-person fete! But Mother Nature had other plans. The outdoor Spring Fling fundraiser, planned to take place at Buffalo Bayou Park, turned into a grab-and-go event, and supporters organized their own picnics at home!
Chair Marianna Corcoran gathered delicious bites like Common Bond sandwiches, B.B. Lemon banana pudding, and a handful of refreshing drinks courtesy of Saint Arnold, Ranch Rider and Suja. More than 60 members and guests of the young professionals group Women of Wardrobe swung by to pick up their picnic packs and purchase raffle tickets; packages included items from Zadok Jewelers, Bludorn restaurant and more.
The night raised more than $17,000 for Dress for Success, furthering the organization's mission to empower women through professional attire and development tools.
