About

 

The best way to have an awesome event is by combining it with giving back.

about

 

When you give to our Benevolent Fund, we make sure that the money goes straight into helping those in need. Legal fees are expensive – but with your help, they can be donated free of charge!

The Little Black Dress Party™ was born out of a conversation between friends, over wine.

We have a love for events that are exciting, delightful, and fun, so we created the Little Black Dress Party™. These events bring women together to celebrate their uniqueness while fundraising on behalf of an awesome cause: legal services for those who need it most! The signature Little Black Dress Party™ aspires to provide everyone with the opportunity to dress up & get out; at the same time increasing awareness and inspiring them to give back.

Many women and children are left to face legal issues without any support from the system. This vulnerable group of people requires assistance with paying basic fees, which can be a barrier in times when they need help dealing with abuse at home or other traumatic events that change their lives forever.

The lack of options available for these women and children in need is especially apparent when it comes down to low-income earners who do not qualify financially for other services are caught in the continual cycle of financial struggle.

Our Mission

 

We focus on creating community awareness by bringing women together for unique and fun fundraising events. These events benefit our Benevolent Fund that supports the legal services for women and children in need. The signature Little Black Dress Party™ aspires to provide an opportunity for women to get out, get dressed up and have fun, while at the same time increasing their awareness and inspiring them to give back.
