Mimosas & Makeovers for Closet of Hope AC!
July 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Grab your girlfriends and join us for this unique brunch event!
$30/ticket will include all you can eat brunch & all you can drink Mimosas & Bloody Marys! You can get there right at 10am when the event begins and stay the entire 4 hours or you can arrive whenever works for your schedule!
While indulging in these delicious brunch items & beverages, you can make your way around to the various vendors that will be sampling products, providing give-aways, and selling products.
Proceeds not only from the ticket purchase but also items purchased from the vendors will go to help Closet of Hope & MudGirls with the rehabilitation of their soon-to-be home space above St. Michael’s Church in Atlantic City.
Dorrie Papademetriou created MudGirls Studios, a ceramic art studio for homeless and at-risk women to earn supplemental income that creates functional pottery for everyday use. MudGirls Studios celebrates a love of clay, the creative process and the chance for women to transform their own lives. It continues to grow and has officially become a 501c3.
The Closet of Hope is designed to be a professional clothing closet, but it is so much more than that! This will be an entire program designed to help prepare and educate individuals looking to obtain employment by connecting them to classes and resources in the community as well as working with them one on one within the areas that they need assistance. There will be volunteers consistently at Closet of Hope that can assist with building resumes, online applications, job searches, etc. We will be partnering with many other community resources as well to make sure that the client is fully supported. Once a client obtains a job interview we will allow them to go shopping in our closet, which will be set up boutique-style so that they feel special about their accomplishment and not just like they received a hand-me down donation. When a job is obtained we would want to continue to work with the client to set new goals and help with job retention.
