About this Event

Do it in style this season during SX Sky Bar’s 12 Days of Charity, a holiday clothing drive in partnership with Dress for Success Worldwide Central.

Join us Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 5-8 p.m. to kick off the drive. Peruse a visual display of fashion through the decades, courtesy of Columbia College Chicago’s Fashion Studies Collection, while enjoying holiday food and drink specials. Bring clothing to donate, and we’ll treat you to a makeup touch-up and professional headshot.

While we generally accept all matters of clean new/gently-used professional, office appropriate attire, shoes and accessories, there are certain items, in which our ladies have a greater need. Currently, those items are as follows:

Winter Coats/Jackets – High Need

Handbags/Pursues – High Need

Shoes sizes 9-12

Hats/gloves/scarves

Professional attire, all sizes; 0-4, 16 & up and in-season most needed – Tip: If you wouldn’t wear it to a job interview or for the first day of work, please do not donate it.

White Blouses/Shell Tops; 14 & up most needed

Toiletries such as lotions, shampoo/conditioner, tooth brushes/ tooth paste, unopened make up

Our clothing drive runs through Sunday, Dec. 22. See you at SX!
