Put Your Best Foot Forward at Dress for Success’ Annual Stepping Out Fundraiser


Dress for Success Ottawa, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged women, is hosting its third annual Stepping Out fundraiser on Thursday May 30th starting at 7pm at Lago Bar & Grill in the Dow’s Lake Pavilion.

In the words of Marilyn Monroe: “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” Dress for Success hopes to do just that with the money raised from its annual charity event.

Stepping Out will raise funds to support the various programs implemented by the organization for economically disadvantaged women in the National Capital Region. Each ticket you purchase will contribute to building the confidence of a Canadian woman and give her the step-up she needs to achieve her goals in life.

The charity event will be a night of entertainment, as guests may win sensational door prizes, snap glamorous pictures in the photo booth, participate in a Diamond Giveaway and bid on their favorite items during the Silent Auction. For those guests who prefer to dance the night away to funk, soul and R&B, DJ Magnificent will put you in a trance with his mesmerizing beats and vocals.

From entertainment to glitz and glamour, Dress for Success Ottawa provides it all. The evening’s signature event, a Showcase Shoe Competition, will be back by popular demand and give guests a chance to win prizes by showing off their most fashionable shoes. Whether you own Jimmy Choo Pumps or Steve Madden stilettos, Dress for Success Ottawa encourages you to come out and compete.

Dress for Success Ottawa’s annual Stepping Out fundraiser is among the many events this organization holds in order to help Canadian women who are economically deprived.
