Hope’s Night Out 2017 Recap

September 6, 2017 3:45 pm

Thank you for supporting Hope’s Night Out & celebrating with us! 

 June 6, 2017 – This year’s event was particularly meaningful and memorable. It was held in a new, mission-matched venue, Moore College of Art, and our friend, colleague, and former client Pam Superville, Director at the Mayor’s Office of Reintegration Services (R.I.S.E.), joined us on stage. What a powerful example of our impact on helping individuals transition to work and build careers when her boss, Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney, introduced her to the audience!
As exhibited during the Hope Walk, Career Wardrobe helps individuals from all different backgrounds and situations break down barriers to work and independence. It doesn’t matter what age, demographic, career path, past or present challenges or trials, Career Wardrobe welcomes, motivates, educates, and empowers everyone that gives us the opportunity. Pam described our work better than anyone when she said:
“When every door in my life’s journey seemed permanently closed, Career Wardrobe not only welcomed me, but they dressed me up! Career Wardrobe gave me the self-confidence to believe in myself and in my success. It worked! Now,
I use Career Wardrobe’s tools and my life’s story to open doors for others.”
Each year we are challenged to raise the funds needed to provide clients with clothing and education, and this year is definitely no exception, as we are slated
to serve over 6,000 individuals. This year, because of you, Hope’s Night Out raised over $75,000 so far!
We haven’t met our goal yet, though, so our important fundraising continues.
We ask you to consider pledging an additional gift or a monthly donation through our Renewing Hope campaign, helping to assure that we can continue our work and help anyone that needs us.
Thank you again to all of our attendees, donors, and sponsors. We hope to see you soon. You can stay up to date on our events and news by following us on Facebook,Twitter, and subscribing to our newsletter.
