MADISON – Wisconsin Women in Government (WWIG) and Klinke Cleaners, in their 10th year of collaboration, are partnering together to help support the YWCA of Madison’s “Suited for Success” program, the organizations announced today.
“As WWIG celebrates our 25th year of helping women pursue careers in public service, we are pleased to once again partner with Klinke Cleaners to support the Suited for Success program,” said Kelli Thompson, WWIG Board President. “Suited for Success helps low-income women return to the workforce by providing them with professional clothing at no charge. We encourage community members to donate women’s business clothing and help make this year’s program a success.”
Up to three “gently used” outfits of women’s business clothing may be donated between April 16 and 27 at any Klinke Cleaners in the Madison area. Mention “Suited for Success” when you drop off the outfits and Klinke Cleaners will clean, press and deliver the clothes to the YWCA of Madison. Receipts will be available. No footwear or accessories, please.
Wisconsin Women in Government was founded in 1987 to celebrate and support the talented women who choose a career in government service or a government-related field by providing scholarships to those who may not have the financial resources to pursue their goals. Proceeds from the Annual Scholarship and Recognition Banquet are used to support scholarships for women at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
This year’s 25th Anniversary Banquet will be held on Thursday, May 24 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Monona Terrace in Madison. The banquet will feature Dana Perino, former White House Press Secretary to President George W. Bush, as the keynote speaker. The banquet will also highlight women involved with WWIG throughout the past 25 years, as well as recent undergraduate scholarship recipients.
Individual banquet tickets are now on sale for $65 and can be purchased online at http://www.WiscWomenInGovernment.org. Sponsorships are also available, and information on sponsorship levels and how to reserve your table can also be found at http://www.WiscWomenInGovernment.org.
