Houston Style Magazine featured Dress for Success Houston and its annual 'A Night Out' event that took place on Nov. 20, 2013. Gardere's sponsorship benefited Dress for Success Houston for the ninth consecutive year. The event was chaired by Gardere Partner Rachel Powitzky Steely, who is also an active member of Dress for Success Houston's Corporate Guild.
When asked about her involvement inspiration in an interview, Ms. Steely said, "Gardere wanted to find an organization where women can empower other women. We have a Women's Council at Gardere, and I'm in charge of the women's council for Houston. One of the things we looked at is how we can get involved and help other women in the community. One of the partners on the board came and talked to me about this, so I thought it was a perfect fit."
Dress For Success attendees enjoyed a three-course dinner, fashion show, boutique shopping, goodie bags and raffle, all contributing to the goal of generating funds to provide professional attire for women transitioning into the workforce. Fundraising efforts that night also provided scholarships to approximately 5,000 women.
