Junior League of San Jose is creating awareness of poverty by hosting a Sip and Stroll event to benefit the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) raising funds for programs that support foster youth on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 from 6-9pm.
The LBDI was pioneered by the Junior League of London with the goal to make poverty unfashionable. While Londoners were attending glamorous Fashion Week that month, local Junior Leaguers wore the same black dress every day to work, parties, dinners, and events to raise awareness on poverty issues in the city. Since then, many Junior League chapters have taken the initiative to fight poverty throughout the world.
At the Santana Row Sip and Stroll, event attendees are encouraged to wear their little black dresses for an evening of fashion and fun. Tickets are $40 and include champagne, wine tastings, treats, and specials discounts inside exclusive Santana Row shops including Anthropologie, Tommy Bahama, Lululemon Athletica, Kendra Scott, Donald J. Pliner, Kit & Ace, Boutique Harajuku, Calypso St. Barth and more. Check in for the event will take place in Santana Row Park (across from Left Bank Brasserie) where attendees will receive a passport, wine glass and time to pose for a photo in their “little black dress.”
