Skinnygirl Cocktails, the industry leader in premium, great-tasting low-calorie cocktails, and Bethenny Frankel, the original Skinnygirl, are getting into the holiday spirit by donating $150,000 to Dress for Success , an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women.
“Dress for Success is so important to me, so on behalf of Skinnygirl Cocktails, I am honored to help deserving women achieve their dreams,” said Frankel. “These women are an inspiration to everyone, and we’re happy to help their cause of establishing and growing their careers.”
On Dec. 17, Frankel and Skinnygirl Cocktails presented a check for $150,000 to Dress for Success at the organization’s graduation ceremony for the Going Places Network, a program that has helped over 10,000 unemployed women secure employment by teaching professional skills, accelerating their job searches and building confidence through weekly training programs, career coaching and ongoing networking. Over the course of the three year partnership, Skinnygirl Cocktails has donated more than $700,000 to Dress for Success.
“Skinnygirl Cocktails is an empowering brand whose mission is to allow women have it all without compromise, and in Dress for Success, we have found a partner who shares that vision by helping women find personal, professional and financial success,” said Megan Frank, Senior Director of Skinnygirl Cocktails. “This donation is our way of saying thank you to Dress for Success for the exemplary work they do all year long.”
