Dress for Success Quad Cities is going virtual for their next big event — Recycle the Runway!

The gig will take place Thursday, August 27, 2020 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. live streamed via zoom.

Dress for Success is focused on empowering women in our Quad Cities community to achieve economic independence through career and professional development. The funds raised by Recycle the Runway each year play a critical role in serving local women.

Join Royal Neighbors of America and Exelon Corporation, along with celebrity emcee Angie Sharp, for an evening of fun for a great cause. Enjoy a “Project Runway” style fashion show where local designers will showcase ensembles crafted from bags of recycled clothing and accessories they purchased sight unseen.

The audience will vote on the winners – with the top 3 taking home cash prizes – so gather your “virtual table” and come cheer on your favorite local artist or small business owner!

The event is free to attend but registration is required. A minimum $15 donation is suggested, which also counts as an entry to win one of the fabulous gift baskets that will be raffled off throughout the evening. All donations are tax-deductible.

Recycle the Runway is presented by Royal Neighbors of America and Exelon Corporation Quad Cities. Special thanks also to Trendsetter Sponsors, Kimberly BMW of Davenport and Olsen Law Firm, and Media Sponsor, WQAD.

Dress for Success Quad Cities is a local non-profit that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing free career counseling, job search assistance, and professional clothing for women in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois searching for full-time employment or transitioning to a new job.
