In Her Shoes breakfast to benefit local women's programs

Posted: Updated:

Friday morning, a breakfast will benefit local programs helping women achieve success. 

It's called "In Her Shoes" and is the first of its kind in Sioux Falls.  Money raised will support both EmBe and Dress For Success which serve women in the Sioux Empire promoting leadership, empowerment, and career development. 

EmBe Director of Women's Leadership/Development Officer Erin Bosch and Dress for Success director Valerie Loudenback joined us on the KSFY Morning News to preview the big event. 

Money raised will help Dress for Success continue its mission to give women a professional look at career development counseling to help achieve their professional goals. 

"That focus is on her. We take the time to find the outfit she feels the most comfortable and confident in," Dress for Success Project Manager Stacey Donovan said. "When they look in the mirror after they have that outfit on, they look and feel pretty special. We go over interview skills with them too. A lot  of times, they feel more confident in that professional attire and after reviewing some questions with our volunteers."

EmBe promotes women's leadership with a program that will also be supported by dollars from the breakfast. 

"As a lot of women are, we're very much doing a lot of things whether it's for family, career, it's good to have a balance and that program allows us to take a look at what we really want to do. It helps up-and-comers become the next stage of leaders become the next leaders of the Sioux Falls community," Women's Leadership Program member Nicole Townswick said.

The 'In Her Shoes' breakfast will be held Friday morning at the Ramkota Exhibit Hall from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m.

Nearly 450 tickets were sold making the event a sell-out. Organizers hope to raise $10,000 for both organizations.
