They are doctors and soldiers, pastors and mayors, celebrities and devoted dads, and they’re all proving that real men empower women.
Founded in 1997, Dress For Success equips disadvantaged women with the tools to succeed in the workplace. Both sharp suits and smart career guidance are part of the program, and some 700,000 women around the world have been served to date. The Dallas affiliate of Dress For Success thrives, supporting the organization’s core mission and hosting events to raise awareness in the community. Its latest program kicks off this week – and it’s a handsome initiative, indeed.
On behalf of Dress For Success Dallas, area gents are turning spokesmen through the Real Men Empower Women campaign. On September 12th, the comely group will make their official debut at an open house also celebrating a brand-new benefit boutique. In advance of the event, pre-interviews revealed heartfelt pride and true commitment to the cause.
“I’m so proud to show my support for local women by being involved in the campaign,” explains musician Larry g(EE). “Growing up with sisters, and being so passionate about supporting everything that they do is why this campaign means so much to me. I want the women in their programs to have all of the support and guidance they need to be successful and happy in life.”
The popular performer’s empowering perspective is one of many among the Real Men. Additional members of the group include Carrollton Mayor Matthew Marchant, celebrity fitness guru Larry North, Dr. James Pickney of Diamond Luxury Healthcare, and Jim Cali, COO of Southern Botanical.
The Real Men will meet and greet visitors this Thursday, September 12th, from 6 – 8 p.m. at Dress For Success’ new boutique (13331 Preston Rd., Suite 2122, Dallas). The open house will be catered by Hell’s Kitchen chef contestant Eddie Wilson, and music will be provided by MC Medina. Here’s to Dress for Success Dallas and the Real Men, dressing women in need in power suits and the empowerment to match!
