Freeport, Illinois – The Black Dress for a Cause event, is back again this year. A committee made up of representatives from Jitterbug Events, Rafters Restaurant and Catering, Fluegels and the United Way bring Northwest Illinois an evening of elegance and fashion at the Wagner House.
This event showcases local businesses through food, desserts, and a fashion show. All of the funds raised through the Black Dress for a Cause Event will be donated to a United Way member agency.
In a partnership effort, the United Way chose 100 Women Who Care to select one of their member agencies to be the beneficiary of the funds from the event. The beneficiary will be revealed during the event.
Last year over $7,000 was donated to the Freeport Area Church Cooperative from the Black Dress for a Cause event. Organizers of the event are proud to showcase several local businesses, provide a stylish night out on the town, all while also raising money for a worthwhile cause.
Purchase your tickets, grab your girlfriends, and put on your black dress for this year’s event on March 3rd at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets are just $50 and can be purchased at www.uwni.org/blackdress or by contacting the United Way of Northwest Illinois at 815-232-5184.
A limited number of VIP Tickets may still be available.
