President of White House Black Market to kick off signature Dress for Success SW Florida event
Dress for Success SW Florida is excited to announce Donna Noce as the keynote speaker for its annual signature event, A Fashion Night in Black & White. The event will be held on Friday, May 12, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida. Ms. Noce is the Founding Board President of Dress for Success SW Florida and has been an integral part of the nonprofit since its inception.
The theme of the evening is Never Give Up. Ms. Noce will speak about her own personal journey and the importance of empowering and encouraging women, which is central to the Dress for Success mission.
"I could not be more honored to speak on a topic that is dear to my heart and at the heart of our brand. Sharing the same message with Dress for Success, White House Black Market honors and embraces women, empowering them to feel confident and beautiful," said Ms. Noce.
When Barbara Dell, CEO of Dress for Success SW Florida, approached Ms. Noce in 2010 about her idea to launch the nonprofit in Southwest Florida, Noce and the White House Black Market team immediately got involved, and since then, she and her team have been tirelessly committed to supporting the organization and its clientele by providing merchandise, volunteer hours and helping to launch the Dress for Success SW Florida boutique.
Money raised from this event will support the mission of Dress for Success SW Florida to help disadvantaged women find and maintain employment and achieve health and wellness as well as self-defined financial support and professional success.
