“It’s my favorite event of the year,” said Nancy Levicki, president and co-founder of Dress for Success Houston. “Our supporters truly see the impact that their investments have on our clients, and the effect of the continuing educational programs that we offer that allow these women to continue to excel in their careers and achieve self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.”
