Waterfront Properties is proud of both PGA National and the Junior League of the Palm Beaches for their efforts to help such a deserving charity.

The latest installment of “Girls Night Out” featured a fashion-forward focus, with a live runway show from Tory Burch, Tommy Bahama, Loudmouth, Oakley, London Edge and apparel from The Honda Classic.

“Girls Night Out” at PGA National also offered up the newest spa trends and beauty tips, hair and makeup treatments, and couture advice from well-known image consultant Marcella Scherer. While admission was free, guests were asked to bring donations of purses, shoes and unused cosmetics to benefit the clients of Dress for Success Palm Beaches.

Dress for Success Palm Beaches is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help women gain economic independence by offering them free professional-workplace attire, including accessories, as well as a network volunteers who provide career-development advice. Dress for Success supports women who actively are searching for a job or have already lined up an interview. The program is monumentally effective: In 2012, more than 300 women with homes in Palm Beach County were served by Dress for Success Palm Beaches.

One of the reasons Dress for Success Palm Beaches is able to help so many women is its fundraisers. In addition to “Girls Night Out,” another affair was coordinated by the Junior League of the Palm Beaches. The Junior League of the Palm Beaches kicked off a clothing-donation drive in the Fall of 2012, collecting more than 400 pieces of career attire to help aspiring working women look their best.

On Jan. 19, about 15 members of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches gathered at Dress for Success Palm Beaches headquarters on East Ocean Avenue in Lantana near Intracoastal Waterway homes for sale and organized the four months’ worth of donated upscale clothes. They sorted, steamed and stacked suits, blouses and dress pants, as well as 20-plus pairs of shoes and 30-plus purses. All of the items were dropped off at one of the official Dress for Success Palm Beaches donation centers -- Blessed Boutique at Downtown at the Gardens, which is near the The Landmark condominium tower in Palm Beach Gardens.

Melodie Veverka, co-owner of Blessed Boutique, said she made the store on Lake Victoria Gardens Avenue an official donation center in October of 2012.

Waterfront Properties is proud of both PGA National and the Junior League of the Palm Beaches for their efforts to help such a deserving charity.

The Junior League of the Palm Beaches’ nonprofit role is to promote volunteerism in women and improve the community through action and leadership.
