In true hats and heels fashion, the 6th Annual Afternoon Tea held on May 25, 2014 was a huge success! The sold-out event hosted 500 attendees to a fashion show sponsored by Southgate Centre as well as a sold-out raffle, and the most successful silent auction to date for us!
This signature fundraising event brings together friends, volunteers, supporters and corporate partners to raise funds in support of Suit Yourself programs and operations while recognizing the many women who have overcome obstacles and have successfully obtained and maintained employment.
“We are extremely proud of this event and of the work that we do in the community,” explained Executive Director Lori McConnell. “This year’s event raised in excess of $59,000 which will help us to continue to serve over 600 disadvantaged women who are searching for jobs or making a transition in the workforce this year. The upcoming year will see some exciting changes for Suit Yourself and the proceeds from the Annual Afternoon Tea are integral in helping the organization meet upcoming challenges.”
