We’ve rolled out the RED CARPET for the 2019 Red Dress Gala!

This is Classy Living Society’s 6th Annual Red Dress Gala!  The Sisterhood Gala on Sunday, October 13, 2019 is honoring “Access Taken,” by spotlighting women who have pulled out all the stops! We are honoring women who are pioneers in their fields, who have remained resilient in the face of adversity and who have defied the odds! Salute to the bold, the fierce, the passionate and the strong… they represent what it means to demonstrate an unwavering drive and determination! These are the women who have achieved the status “Access Taken” and these are the women who are also encouraging young girls to do the same!

In our quest to meet, greet, celebrate and sisterhood bond with amazing women in other states, CLS is taking the Gala on the road! This year, our most exciting event of the year is going to be held in the “City with No Limits” … HELLO HOUSTON!

For more information on the Gala, including how to purchase tickets and become a sponsor, visit the Red Dress Gala website at the link below!

As a premier national women’s community service organization, Classy Living Society’s No. 1 mission and goal is to be present in the community, while partnering with amazing nonprofit organizations and people to make a difference.  CLS was #OntheMove in a number of places this weekend!  Saturday’s activities included:

 

  • Adopt-a-Road Cleanup: As part of DeKalb County’s beautification initiative, Adopt-A-Road allows individuals and groups to adopt a road and help their local community environment by collecting litter and beautifying streets in their neighborhood. This countywide program allows the “You’re the Solution to Litter Pollution” motto to spark awareness among citizens of all ages.   CLS members arrived early to our adopted road to remove trash and litter.  We are proud of our adopted road, and our part in maintaining cleanliness and beauty in DeKalb County, Georgia!  Information about their beautification program can be found at https://www.dekalbcountyga.gov/beautification/adopt-road-0
  • The Enchanted Closet:  CLS members were on hand to assist The Enchanted Closet in their 2019 Prom Dress Giveaway.  The mission of The Enchanted Closet is to physically, mentally, and emotionally outfit metropolitan Atlanta high school girls from low-income families through programs that prepare them for social and professional milestones.  Girls attending 79 schools in metro Atlanta Counties were registered for the 17th Annual Prom Dress Giveaway.  It was a joy to work with this worthwhile organization in getting girls ready for one of the most exciting days of their lives.  Find out more information about The Enchanted Closet at http://enchantedcloset.org/
  • Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC): The FODAC Community Thrift Store offers a large variety of clothing, furniture, household goods, jewelry, books and music – and so much more! All proceeds from the thrift store support FODAC’s mission of supplying medical equipment to those with disabilities at little or no cost to the recipients or their families.  CLS volunteers assisted in sorting donated clothing and various items to be placed on the floor for sale to the thrift store patrons.  We were happy to be able to work together with FODAC to make each day a little easier, and a little more affordable, for people in need.  FODAC’s website can be accessed at https://www.fodac.org/
  • Dine and Discuss: Getting together and socializing with like-minded women is probably near the top of the list of great things for women to do.  CLS strives to promote sisterhood bonding and friendship among its members, and Dine and Discuss outings are one of the best ways to encourage this premise.  A few members got together at Grand Lux Cafe, a restaurant housed in one of Atlanta’s most upscale locations, Phipps Plaza.  Good food, good conversation and sisterhood bonding = a great night!

On Sunday, a group of CLS volunteers arose super early(!) to assist Publix with their annual Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K race sponsored by the Atlanta Track Club.  Read about that exciting volunteer activity in a separate post on this week’s #CLSontheMove Blog!
