Every year Career Wardrobe hosts a Cocktail Reception & Auction. I was fortunate enough to attend this inspiring event. I got the chance to learn so much more about the growth of the organization and I was reminded of why I actively blog for this non-profit. They have helped 3,000 individuals and on they’re on the track to improving the lives of 6,000 people with their expansion. I’m so impressed with what they’ve accomplished so far and I’m excited to be a part of their mission to empower women and now men.
The event was held at the lovely Crystal Tea Room right above Macy’s in Center City on June 9th from 5:30-8:30pm. There were tables set up in the lobby area to sell items and to enter into a raffle from the Wardrobe Boutique.
The silent auction items were displayed along the room organized by categories.
The spread was amazing and that wasn’t even half of the food.

So happy to attend the event with fellow blogger, Pri. We had to take a photo with the Lilly Pulitzer bike! Check out her blog at PaintTheTownChic.
Let the show begin…
The fashion show featured real clients and some local celebrities such as Rick Williams, Sue Serio, and Monique Braxton.
After the fashion show, the live auction began. The first one started with having lunch with the Mayor of Philadelphia, Jim Kenney.
There were so many great live auction items and of course it ended with the limited Lilly Pulitzer pink bike.
At the end of the night, Career Wardrobe raised thousands of dollars and it was fun to be a part of this event. They did a great job!
