Markey’s partners with Dress for Success for the 5th consecutive year

Markey’s is proud to sponsor Dress for Success Indianapolis’ annual Stepping Out In Style program. This year’s event boasted close to 900 attendees and raised more than $200,000. Proceeds from the fundraiser will provide professional attire, career development services and job retention support for more than 1300 women in the Indianapolis community.

 

The evening begins with a reception, the Diamond Dig and a silent auction. Dinner and a fashion show are the highlight of the evening and the event is concluded by an after party celebration.

The event stage featured Markey’s Moddim panels flanked by drape. The staging used blue and violet uplighting and was complimented with intelligent lighting fixtures (Martin Mac 101 LEDs). Markey’s provided high definition image magnification (IMAG) to allow the audience to see the evening’s details projected on 16 ft x 9 ft screens.

“As usual, Markey’s Rental & Staging exceeded our expectations! The stage was breathtaking, the show was beautifully executed and we heard nothing but wonderful comments from our guests and sponsors. We’re incredibly grateful to Markey’s for believing in our mission and supporting Stepping Out In Style. This annual event generates nearly 40% of the revenue needed to operate our programs for women. We couldn’t be more grateful for our partnership and look forward to Stepping Out In Style 2016!” commented Barbara Ellsworth, Executive Director of Dress for Success Indianapolis.
