Town Seal

Farmingville, NY - On September 28, 2022, Dress for Success Brookhaven will celebrate 23 years of empowering women in our community at their annual gala to be held at Land’s End in Sayville. Each year hundreds of women come through our doors – women who have lost their jobs, survived abuse, or simply faced challenges that have held them back. Dress for Success Brookhaven gives these women hope and a second chance to succeed both professionally and personally. By providing the tools and resources needed to find a job and keep it, we are empowering women to create a brighter future and inspiring them to follow their dreams.

We cannot offer these life changing services without your support! Please join us for an evening of celebration at our annual gala. There are many opportunities for getting involved with our gala; whether you donate an auction item, come on board as an event sponsor or purchase tickets to attend the event, your contribution will directly support the programs that Dress for Success provides to women across Long Island.
