Little Black Dress Campaign

Little Black Dress Campaign
 
MINOT, ND – Women United, affinity group of Souris Valley United Way, announces their first Annual Little Black Dress Campaign event.
 
During the week of February 22nd, area women will be wearing a black dress or outfit for five consecutive days and collecting funds to help local women.  Event proceeds will be distributed to area programs designed to help women battling poverty, entering the workforce, or caring for their families.
 
An online fundraising platform has been created at http://www.svunitedway.com/little-black-dress-campaign and provides family, friends, and the community the opportunity to support these women’s efforts to showcase the struggles local women are facing every day.  
 
“Our goal is to bring awareness to challenges facing women in our community and raise funds to help them overcome their everyday struggles,” stated Dusty Zimmerman President of Women United.  Zimmerman encourages the community to participate and show their support for those in the area who are struggling to be contributing citizens in our community.

Kick-Off Breakfast for Participants will be held Monday, February 22nd at 8:00 am at the Holiday Inn.
