Dress for Success truly puts on an elegant show and knows how to entertain us while we loosen our purse strings, bid on the auction items, pick up a few holiday gifts while giving to a good cause.
The Lovely Ms. Rodriguez, having benefited from the programs tutelage, was our guest speaker, letting us all know how DFS helped her define her career goals, spurned her to “get in shape” and has made her want to give back in her own life! Truly inspirational.
The silent auction had a wonderful array of wine packages, weekend stays at the glorious Kimpton Hotels, several photographers, a great newspaper carry bag, Anna Sui Shoes….you get the drift, generously donated items that were sought after.
I know I won a photography portrait session and I’m waiting to hear what my final bid was – knowing I’ll be happy to have the sitting and grateful that the photographer is donating their time and effort….and fee to DFSS – San Fracnsico.
So ladies….next year – let me know if you want to attend and I’ll be sure to remind you to come along, sample the delicious h’or doeuvres and wine, enjoy the elegance and hospitality while indulging in some Christmas season shopping while giving back.
