Two queens donate to "Dress for Success"

Dasia Clark, National American Miss Illinois Pre-Teen Cover Girl and Brianna Lewis, National American Miss All-American Princess, participated in the non-profit organization, Dress For Success, annual 'One Suit Weekend' on February 19th-22nd. The mission of Dress for Success is to promote 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.

Dasia's mom e-mailed me and shared that "Dasia and Brianna were determined to collect suits to help enable another individual to reach for their dreams, just as many others have helped them to do. After all of their hard work and determination Dasia and Brianna collected 25 suits for the organization and two huge bags full of shoes, skirts, and blouses. The suits were collected by one of our local 'Dressbarn' stores (Dressbarn is a sponsor and drop-off agent). The Dressbarn store manager, Dasia, and Brianna are shown in the attached pictures along with some of the suits that they donated."

Nice work ladies! For more information about the organization, visit their website: http://www.dressforsuccess.org/
