Last season's skirt? Not-your-style pants suit? A way-too-big blazer? 

We all have clothing we could remove from our wardrobes. As we transition from summer into fall, it's a great time to look through our closets and pull out anything we no longer wear. However, just because you're "over" that pretty, professional dress, doesn't mean its lost its value. That outfit could be just what another woman needs!

Pull together your gently-used professional clothing and join us for Clothes & Cocktails. We'll sip and sort at the home of a Young Women's Leadership Network board member. Your donated items will go to Dress for Success, which will help give a woman a fresh start. 

Event hosts: Alyssa Weiner and Lauren Landau

For nearly 20 years, Dress for Success has worked to "brighten the lives of women" through a seemingly simple gesture: providing them with professional clothing. The international not-for-profit organization empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Gathering professional Jewish women in their 20s and 30s who are interested in personal and professional development, leadership opportunities, and connecting to a community of women.
