Cocktails & Clothes

AWEE fundraiser gathers 2 tons of clothing.

Arizona Women’s Education & Employment (AWEE) hosted Cocktails & Clothes at the Adobe Grill on March 7. The event raises clothing, accessories and general funds for the organization and its clothing boutique.

The 150 guests generated $45,000 for AWEE services and programs. They also broke the record for clothing collected at the event, amassing 4,000 pounds of clothing. The contributions will help AWEE clients dress appropriately for interviews and jobs.

Phyllis Dumond and Kathy Jorgenson co-chaired the event.
