March is Women's History month and we want to commemorate by honoring a remarkable group of women! Join My Distinct Events for a networking event that will celebrate the accomplishments and hard work of some of Chicagoland's premiere women, including authors, speakers, entrepreneurs and leaders. Mix and mingle with likeminded female (and male) professionals and entrepreneurs...all while supporting a good cause! Proceeds from the event will go to Dress for Success.

*We are looking for new and gently used women's clothing that is appropriate for an interview in a professional environment. If you would wear the item to an interview or to work, then yes we can use it. All clothing items must be donated on the day of the event, in good condition, or the event patron will be asked to pay full price for the ticket. Each item of clothing donated is good for one discounted ticket sale and may not be used for multiple ticket sales, unless the number of clothing items matches the number of tickets sold.
