As was fitting for an event dedicated to the Dress for Success nonprofit, about 200 guests donned glam and gorgeous outfits, and headed to the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta in September for the 2022 Empow- Her Gala.
The evening of cocktails, dinner, dancing and live and silent auctions raised about $250,000 for the organization dedicated to empowering women to achieve economic success by offering a support network, life and workplace skills and, of course, professional attire. The gala was chaired by Tammy Farley of Duluth and Buckhead’s Thu Saunders who coordinated auction items that included experiences by Saks, Bill Lowe Gallery, United Distributors, the Thompson Buckhead and more. They welcomed the evening’s honoree, Johnita Due, executive vice president of Integrity & Inclusion for CNN Worldwide. Media sponsor Simply Buckhead joined other sponsors ADP, Morgan Stanley, ACS, J.P. Morgan, Georgia Power, Artisan Beauté and Iron Oaks Wealth Advisors to make the evening a success.
