Farmingville, NY - In recognition of International Women's Day, the Town of Brookhaven has announced that Dress for Success Brookhaven will hold “A Taste of Country” fundraiser on Friday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard in Calverton. The event will raise money to support the work being done to help disadvantaged women thrive in work and life. It will help ensure that Dress for Success Brookhaven has the necessary funding throughout the year to provide services to deserving women. The women served by Dress for Success Brookhaven come from across Long Island. They are job ready women who have been referred by over 250 local non-profit organizations; including domestic violence agencies, veteran’s organizations, homeless shelters and job training programs. Dress for Success Brookhaven is sponsored by the Town of Brookhaven Department of Housing and Human Services, Division of Women’s Services.
“A Taste of Country” event sponsorship will enable women to participate in the full range of Dress for Success affiliate program offerings including; access to professional attire, Career Center training, our unique job readiness Career EDGE program and our Professional Women’s Group.
