I have the absolute delight of being on the Dress for Success Advisory Board and was very excited for this year’s Impact 360 event being held in its new location, The Permanent. The Permanent is such an incredible space for Vancouver and I really loved it for this event. It was a gorgeous backdrop to the evening and made for awesome photos.

Fred Lee & Jennifer Palma did an awesome job of keeping the crowd entertained and energy up throughout the evening.

The silent auction items were enticing as always, including; getaways, jewellery, spa treatments, wine tastings, and hard-to-get tickets to sports games. The live auction items were especially incredible this year, including amazing combinations of getaways for large groups at the Nk’Mip Resort, Mission Hill, Seattle, Tigh Na Mara and Chateau Whistler. There is nothing like watching Fred Lee build a crowd’s excitement during a live auction! The bidding was intense for these items which was fun to watch. An extra cool draw prize was a trip for two to anywhere Westjet flies! Everyone was excited for this draw, the room fell to a complete hush when the winning ticket number was read.

My favourite part of Impact 360 is the fashion show some of the women put on that have completed the Dress for Success program. They have their hair and make-up done, then get a new glamorous outfit to work the runway. Seeing their joy and newfound confidence is so moving and shows what a worthy program Dress for Success offers!

Congratulations to Jennifer Halinda, Christina Florencio and the entire committee, you outdid yourselves yet again! This year’s Impact 360 raised $110,000 that will open the door to 300 women and help them get into the workforce.
