“Success: You Wear it Well” is a fitting theme for the upcoming 10th anniversary gala of Dress for Success San Francisco.  June 18th 2015 will mark a major milestone for the organization that works to advance Bay Area women in the workforce.

The landmark occasion will be celebrated at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. This year’s event will include special guests Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide, as well as Niki Leondakis, CEO of Commune Hotels & Resorts. Vicki Liviakis of KRON-4 will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. In this role, she will lead attendees through an evening of fine wine and delicious cuisine by top local chefs. Additional event highlights will include a fashion show featuring the latest attire from Talbots and a silent and live auction offering an exquisite array of donations and fashion items by local luminaries, such as Jennifer Siebel Newsom.

A early wave of support came from Bay Area boutique, Gallery of Jewels, which hosted a launch party at its Fillmore Street boutique on May 20th. Guests gathered for an evening of bling, bubbles and mingling while learning about the organization and upcoming gala.
