Success Story

The local branch of Dress for Success — a national nonprofit that provides appropriate business attire for low-income women with job interviews — is celebrating its tenth anniversary of do-gooding in Denver, and its staff will be tooting the organization's horn at an appropriate place: Soulrise Gallery, a woman-centric spot at 821 West Eighth Avenue that's in the midst of its own celebration honoring Women's History Month. Call it sisterly love.

Bring donations of gently used suits and handbags to tonight's open house from 7 to 10 p.m. Along with food, wine and live music, donors will receive discounts on gallery merchandise (one item per person). Admission is a $10 donation at the door; entry in a Soulrise raffle is also $10. For details, call 303-825-7685 or go to For information about Dress for Success, visit
Wed., April 11, 6-8 p.m.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
