Bethesda, MD | November 11, 2013 – The Women’s Connect Group at Offit Kurman partnered with Dress for Success of Washington, DC to host a Suit Drive and Networking Event on October 24, 2013. “The amount of support we received for this event was phenomenal,” stated Ms. Revée Walters, an Offit Kurman associate. Over 1,000 items of clothing, jewelry, shoes, purses, and scarves were donated for this great cause. “It was a great demonstration of how professional women are committed to networking and fostering relationships with one another, as well as dedicating themselves to service activities that uplift those in need in the greater Washington DC metro community.”   This was the kickoff event for the newly established Women’s Connect Group. The purpose of Women’s Connect will be to quarterly sponsor a non-profit organization and host an event for women in the DC Metropolitan area, from all professional backgrounds, to engage in community service oriented activity. Dress for Success (DFS) is a non-profit organization that helps promote working professionals by providing women with professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help them thrive in both work and personal life. The Women’s Connect Group was honored to share this evening with such an empowering and generous group of women professionals, and truly appreciated the support of Kathleen Yates, Office Manager at Dress for Success (kyates@dfsdc.org) and Karen Clark, board member of Dress for Success (kclark@cbiz.com).
