Shopping and charitable giving are set to converge on Main Street, Westport this Saturday, Dec. 3, as a women’s clothing store stages a holiday benefit to help dependent women move into the workforce.
The upscale Eileen Fisher store plans to donate 10 percent of the day’s sales to Dress For Success Mid-Fairfield County, a not-for-profit organization that helps women in southwestern Connecticut get jobs by providing business appropriate clothing and professional development training.
“Eileen Fisher has been hosting these in-store shopping events for us for seven years now,” said Darryl Manning, Dress for Success executive director. “It’s a fabulous way to get your holiday shopping done and help a worthy charity at the same time.”
Manning added that shoppers will receive $25 off all purchases made throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Also, local resident and celebrity chef George Stella, star of the Food Network show, “Low Carb and Lovin’ It,” is scheduled to be on hand to cook up some of his recipes and sign copies of his book, “Livin’ Low Carb.”
According to Manning, Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County has helped more than 3,000 women is seven years and is one of 79 affiliates worldwide. For more information, call 203-333-6505 or visit their website at http://www.dressforsuccess.org/midfairfieldcounty.
