Be a catalyst for change in the lives of disadvantaged women striving for economic self-sufficiency
Support Dress for Success Morris County’s “Transforming Lives Gala”
The annual Dress for Success® Morris County "Transforming Lives Gala," will be held on April 25th at the Westin Governor Morris in Morristown, NJ. There are tremendous synergies between the HBA, who sees itself as a catalyst for leadership development of women in healthcare and Dress for Success® Morris County who sees itself as a catalyst for change in the lives of women striving to become economically self-sufficient. The HBA and Dress for Success have always had a special partnership and the two organizations are working to forge an even stronger partnership.
Michele A. Brown, CEO of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, will serve as the keynote speaker. The EDA is the State agency that serves as New Jersey’s bank by financing small and mid-sized businesses, administering tax incentives to retain and grow jobs, revitalizing communities through redevelopment initiatives and supporting entrepreneurial development by providing access to training and mentoring programs.
The 7th annual Dress for Success Morris County "Transforming Lives Gala,” will be a special evening with a cocktail hour, three-course dinner, silent auction, live auction and more. The live auction will feature Sean Kelly, known as the auctioneer on the reality hit show on Tru TV, “Storage Hunters.”
All proceeds from the event will assist Dress for Success Morris County in its continued mission of providing disadvantaged women with the tools - both in obtaining professional attire and career support –to get back into the workforce and onto career success.
This is a great networking event and a great opportunity for companies to gain exposure with corporate executives across Northern New Jersey.
