Gardere invites charitable and business-minded Houstonians with a love for fashion and philanthropy to A Night Out, benefitting Dress for Success Houston, an event to help raise awareness and funds to purchase professional attire for low-income women transitioning into the workforce. The evening features dinner and a fashion show, boutique shopping, surprise bags, and a raffle, with a fabulous style presentation full of need-to-know fashion tips and trends by local image consultants Cathy Fitzpatrick Cleary and Holly Thompson. KPRC Local 2 News Anchor Rachel McNeill will emcee the 12th annual event for approximately 500 attendees, including influential community leaders and top-level female executives.
Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP, a leading full-service law firm in the Southwest, serves as the event’s presenting platinum sponsor and aims to surpass the more than $150,000 raised at last year’s event. The fundraiser is chaired by Rachel Powitzky Steely, a Labor and Employment partner in Gardere’s Houston office and member of Dress for Success Houston’s Corporate Guild.
Individual tickets are available for $150 per ticket and sponsorship levels begin at $2,500 for a reserved table of 10. To purchase tickets or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, contact Ray Rivas with Gardere at 713-276-5508 or email@example.com.
