Thank you so much for your interest in helping with the “Shoe-Raiser” to benefit Dress for Success Charleston.
The event will be held at Mynt Charleston (135 Calhoun St) on March 2 from 5-8.
The main purpose of this event is to raise money and awareness for Dress for Success Charleston. Dress for Success is a non-profit that helps women find independence through work. They help women in need with appropriate interview clothes.
The secondary purpose of this events is to promote small businesses around Charleston that would be interested in partnering toward this cause.
Here’s what I need from you:
1) Help me get people to the event! If you could commit to bringing your friends and sharing the event on social media, that would be great. Make it a fun girls night and make sure your friends, small group sisters, and co workers come. Mynt is donating 10% of all sales during the event, so getting people there and eating and drinking will be a big part of our success. There is no cover, but we will be selling raffle tickets.
2) We need raffle prizes. If you own a business, I would love to have you donate something we could use as a raffle prize. Also, it would be amazing if you would reach out to your friends who own business or in a position to say “Yes” and ask them if they would be willing to donate a prize. In the past we have had lots of gift certificates and they make great prizes! Restaurants, hotels, stores, your network marketing business owner friends, plus crafters and artist, reach out them all! Every company that donates a prize will be thanked at the event as well as on social media. If you have a lead on a company that would maybe be a better fit as a sponsor (that means they would donate money instead of a prize) please direct them to me. Sponsor’s will have a much bigger presence in our marketing and I have several levels of sponsorship available. Good sponsor partners might be banks, churches, doctors’ offices or other businesses that wouldn’t offer a gift card for their products and services.
3) If you have a relationship with any members of the media, I have a press release ready to go and I would love to share it with them. Any media exposure at all would be awesome for Dress for Success!
Please let me know how you think you could help! I am so grateful for you already!
