Style 2016 Fashion Fundraiser


On Friday, September 9, 2016, Dress for Success Indianapolis and PNC Bank will present the 14th annual Stepping Out In Style fundraising event in downtown Indianapolis at the JW Marriott!


It will be a night of high fashion, great food, critical fundraising and loads of fun! The evening includes a cocktail reception sponsored by Bedel Financial Consulting, Inc., dinner, fashion show and an after party sponsored by Mainstreet. Artwork for this year’s event was created by Ashley Chew.


The Bedel Financial Consulting, Inc. cocktail reception begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner, fashion show and the Mainstreet after party. During the cocktail reception, guests can purchase tickets for the Grand Prize Drawing, and try their hand at the Diamond Dig, sponsored by Aronstam Fine Jewelers! New this year, a Wine Pull will be offered to our guests and will feature 400 bottles of wine! Guests can then join us at the after party to visit with friends and meet our models, artist and sponsors for the evening.


Dress for Success Indianapolis will welcome community leaders and two of our Professional Women’s Group members as models to the stage for a high-energy fashion show. They will be wearing unique clothing from upscale local boutiques and walking the catwalk escorted by esteemed members of the Indianapolis Fire Department.
