The Global Connections for Women Foundation (GC4W) Partners with Young Executives for Success, an affiliate of Dress for Success to host a Networking and Fundraising Event at ACME Restaurant and Bar in New York City on Tuesday, May 19th, 2015 from 6-10pm.
Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
The Young Executives for Success (Y.E.S!) is the official branch of Dress for Success that provides its members with volunteer, fundraising and networking opportunities to champion the mission of Dress for Success. Y.E.S! was launched in New York City in 2005 and now has chapters in more than 15 cities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Y.E.S! members are mid-career professional women with strong networks and a deep commitment to the mission Dress for Success. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 140 cities in 19 countries and has helped more than 850,000 women work towards self-sufficiency.
With the first Networking and Happy Hour Fundraiser Event, the Global Connections for Women Foundation continues to fundraise for the “GC4W New School Development Project” for Disabled Girls in Karamajiji, Abuja.
As the inaugural program of the Global Educational Fund for Disable Girls (under the GC4W Community Development and Empowerment Program), the first initiative is designed to support the Karamajiji New School Development Project for disabled girls in Karamajiji, Abuja.
We launched a new crowd funding campaign on “Give Forward” to benefit the GC4W Karamajiji New School Development Project in Nigeria – as a continuation of our fundraising efforts that started at the recent GC4W International Women’s Day Awards & Benefit Gala held at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC on March 7th, 2015.
We invite all our supporters to join us at ACME Restaurant and Bar NYC on Tuesday, May 19th, 2015 for a fun Networking & Fundraising Happy Hour Event. Come Network with Professionals in the New York Metro Area, while supporting two Great Causes.
