Donate to your favorite Swaggerer. Support the men who have volunteered to "Raise the Heel" for women and benefit Dress for Success Charlotte.
On Saturday, May 11th Dress for Success Charlotte will hold its 8th Annual “Shake, Swagger & Stroll featuring The Stiletto Swagger.” The event, at Freedom Park, will raise funds to allow the organization to continue its mission of helping women break the cycle of poverty by preparing them for the job market. It does this by providing job preparedness, job acquisition, employment retention, financial education and career advancement services. Nearly 80% of the women served are single heads of households with two children; 10% of clients are parenting their grandchildren.
There is a fiendish twist to the event. In addition to teams of walkers participating in the 5k family friendly Walk, a.k.a. The Stroll, a stalwart group of men - possessed of passion for the organization but little sense of shame - will participate in a “Stiletto Swagger” down the red carpet to music wearing Stilettos, Mary Janes, Pumps, Wedges, Platforms, or whatever best suits our personality.
Please don’t make me humiliate (and possibly injure) myself in vain.
