No matter what your style is, you probably enjoy shopping. Whether it’s a full day in the mall, online shopping or simply giving your mom a list of clothes you need for birthday presents; we all need and enjoy clothes to some extent. Because putting together outfits that represent who you are is fun. And because when you look good, you feel good!
Of course, there is much more to a person than how they look. We have all heard the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” But in some situations, such as a job interview, you are judged for your appearance. Because that is a part of the process, and employers want to hire someone who can represent their company well on a visual level.
Some of us have time, money and resources to pull together a professional outfit for an interview and the many days on the job that follow, but others do not. That’s where inspirational people like Toni come into the picture to shine light in our world and show true compassion to fellow women. Check out how Toni is helping women “dress for success” and learn how you can be a part of this amazing cause!!
My name is Toni Lynne Mischke, and I am starting the Y.E.S! (Young Executives for Success) branch of Dress for Success. I got involved in Dress for Success because I love the goal of this non-profit. What happens is that Women get referred to us from places like the YWCA when they get a job interview. Our job is to give them an outfit for free that is appropriate for the interview. So they come to either me or my mother and get a makeup tutorial, and then are sent to Misty’s hair salon for a hair cut. If they then get the job they can come back and get a weeks worth of outfits for free. I believe that it is important to reach out to the women in our community and get them back into the workforce. I especially believe it is important to get the young people in Missoula reaching out as well.
We are putting on an event on Monday April 29th beginning at 6:30. It is a Fashion show to show off the amazing clothing that we give these women. We are having sorority models that are being escorted by our male athletes on campus. There is going to be a silent auction, we have been working with Missoula companies for those items. We are also serving a banquet of Cajun Fire shrimp. The cost of the tickets are $25 for one ticket with dinner $45 for a couple. But if you do not wish to have dinner and refreshments but just want to come it is $10. All of the proceeds go to Dress for Success Missoula.
I am very excited for this event and think that this will be a lot of fun. If anyone has any questions, or wishes to buy a ticket they can feel free to call me or email me a (406)-241-6745 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If tickets wish to be purchased online or someone just wants to know more about Dress for Success the webpage is always up. www.dressforsuccess.org/missoula. Thank you for all of the support and I hope to see everyone there!!
Love always, Toni Lynne Mischke!
