Miss Professional Nail president Mike Vo has announced the company’s first annual “100 Dresses” campaign in conjunction with non-profit Working Wardrobes. After accepting the invitation to join its board of directors earlier this year, Vo explored opportunities to support the charity’s confidence-building mission: to empower men, women, and young adults who have faced life crises to re-enter the workforce through job skills and professional wardrobe services.
The “100 Dresses” nationwide campaign will benefit the at-risk high school seniors attending this year’s “Dreams Girls and Distinguished Gentlemen” Prom Event, presented by Working Wardrobes. Excess dresses will be donated to the Camp Pendleton YMCA to prepare and serve nearly 800 Marine wives so they can attend the Marine Ball.
In return for gently used prom dresses and attire donated to Working Wardrobes, Miss Professional has pledged a gift of six bottles of Sation Nail Lacquer to the first 100 donors; every donor thereafter will receive three bottles. Says Working Wardrobes founder and CEO Jerri Rosen, “We are so honored to have Mike Vo join our board of directors. Mike is a powerful voice for corporate social responsibility, as is evident in this amazing national drive Mike is orchestrating. We are looking forward to an avalanche of dresses from everywhere in the country!”
The “100 Dresses” campaign will run through February 22, 2013. The following guidelines apply:
Shipments can be sent to Working Wardrobes, 3030 Pullman St., Costa Mesa, CA 92626. Drop-offs (use same location) are accepted Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., through February 22 (excluding holiday weekends).
Don’t forget to mention Miss Pro Nail with your shipment/drop-off to ensure that every donor receives her free polish.
