To the Editor: Divas’ Fashion Show was a great success!

Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois would like to thank all the “Divas” who attended our Diva’s Night Out Fashion Show and Diva Dress Sale on April 1 and 2, 2011. The event was a great success with over 1,000 attendees in total, and tremendous media and community support.

The event featured beautiful dresses and accessories on sale at Goodwill prices, so every area woman can afford to be a diva! Thank you to the Clock Tower Resort for hosting the event, as well as Totally You Hair Salon, Merle Norman Cosmetics, Marden Distributors, Educators of Beauty, Spa Contouz, Thunder Bay Grille, Weis-Morris Day Spa, Amari, and Body Bronze Tanning Salon for their generous donations. Thank you to all of our models who volunteered their time to participate in this event.

We wish to thank all the community members who donate their items to our local Goodwill retail stores, as this event would not be possible without the generosity of our community. Funds generated from the Diva Dress Sale and Goodwill stores go toward training and placement services for individuals with barriers to attain meaningful employment.

Thank you, Divas, and see you next year!
