one night one mission: dress for success

we are straying from our normal friday diy to share a great local event with you that is coming up. if you like to 1. dress up, 2. have fun, and 3. donate to a good cause, we have the event for you!!!

i'm sure you've heard of dress for success before. they are a fabulous not-for-profit organization that helps people find, and keep, employment. they give women one suit when she has a job interview, and she can trade it in for another when she finds work. they also provide ongoing support as women both look for, and transition into a new job. basically, it's a pretty amazing organization.

so, on to the event. here's the deets:
when: october 23, 2013 6:00 pm 
where: aria
it's going to be amazing. tickets are $100, which might seem steep...but think about are getting a ticket to a fabulous event, with a red carpet photo shoot, live music, silent auction, fancy food, and drinks. (the price of the ticket includes two drinks and hors d' oeuvres.) oh, and did i mention that it's tax deductible? oh, and did i mention it's for a great cause? you know you want to go!!!

if you are a fancy-dancy minnesotan and would like to go, click here for tickets. you can also donate at that site of you aren't local. the birds plan on going, so if you're there, swing by and say hello!!

if we haven't convinced you yet, did we mention that this is a perfect excuse to buy yourself a new dress? convinced?
we hope you can make it!

xoxo, two birds
