Suit Dreams Sets Goal to Provide 250 Male Students of Color with Custom Suits; Hosts 5thAnnual Suit Drive Fundraiser in NYC.
For the past five years, Suit Dreams, has held an annual professional attire drive to collect suits for high school male students of color in New York and Chicago to use for prom, internships and job interviews. With over 1,000 suit donations to date, this year the NY-based charitable organization is raising the bar and aiming to arm 250 young inner city scholars with new, custom suits complete with appropriate shirts, ties and shoes to prepare them for the next step on their journeys to successful careers.
Suit Dreams has set a goal of raising $50,000 to fund the program and is hosting its 5th Annual Suit Drive Fundraiser on May 2, 2015 at Parlor Private Members Club and Event Space in New York, NY. The event will begin at 12:00 pm and will be chaired by Suit Dreams founder and Wall Street executive, Jerrell Horton. In addition to the fundraiser, the organization has started a GoFundMe page for financial donations.
Suit Dreams aims to transform the national perception of the young urban male by enhancing their professional image, facilitating academic achievement and fostering civic responsibility. In addition to donating suits to inner city males, the organization serves as a mentoring platform and organizes corporate field trips in an effort to expose students to professional environments and executive leaders of color.
