Toronto takes on Pearls, Pumps and Purses Challenge … in heels Dress for Success Toronto launches Women in Advertising, Public Relations, Fashion and Communications accessory drive (TORONTO, Feb. 16, 2011) - We all know clothes don’t make the woman. But the perfect outfit — topped with delicate pearls, pretty pumps or a fabulous handbag — can help us feel a little better, walk a little taller and shine a little brighter. Dress for Success Toronto is pleased to announce the first annual Pearls, Pumps and Purses Challenge, an accessory drive that will see women in Advertising, Public Relations, Fashion and Communications take part in a friendly competition to collect the most accessories to donate to Dress for Success Toronto. “When Dress for Success Toronto clients visit us to receive professional attire, accessories really pull their outfits together to give them an extra boost,” says Jessica Roelink, Executive Director and Founder. “Whether our clients are re-entering the workforce, new to the country or changing careers, we’re with them every step of the way.” The Pearls, Pumps and Purses Challenge will launch on Tuesday, March 8, the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, and run until Thursday, March 30. Participating companies are invited to collect new and nearly new accessories — jewellery, shoes, purses, hosiery and toiletries — in their workplace during that time. The winning company will be announced shortly after the completion of the challenge and crowned at a celebratory event honouring all participants. Invited participants include the top 50 Advertising, Public Relations, Communications firms in Toronto as well as local designers. Dress for Success Toronto is a registered Canadian charity that changes the lives of Canadians and New Canadians by providing no- and low-income women with the necessary professional attire and career development tools they need to achieve success.
