The Wichita affiliate of Dress for Success has
announced a new fund-raising initiative, the Kansas Women of Distinction tribute book. The coffee-table-style book will feature photographs and short stories honoring Kansas women. ³Every one of us have women in our lives who have influenced and guided us to be better; better mothers, better business women and better community leaders,² said Pat Jones, Executive
Director of Dress for Success Wichita. ³The Kansas Women of Distinction tribute book is an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of these women in a lasting way.²
Individuals or groups can purchase pages in the book beginning today. A half- page tribute is $500. A full-page tribute is $1,000. A two-page
spread is $2,500. Each tribute will consist of a photograph and a short
passage describing the qualities and contributions of the woman. The
tribute pages will be sold until August 2009. The finished book will be
printed in mid-September and will be presented to the honoree (s) at a
publication party. Those purchasing tribute pages will receive copies of the book. Additional copies will be available for $27.50. Details about the book and the order process can be found at the web site listed below.
Proceeds from the purchase of the tributes and sale of the books benefit Dress for Success Wichita, which promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Tribute pages can be ordered on-line or by calling Dress for Success Wichita at (316) 945-8779.
