Hope you had a great holiday! If you’re still in the holiday spirit and giving mood, I definitely suggest you check out Kenzie’s Closet. A few months ago, Cincy Chic hosted a “Wearable Art Fashion Show” event to benefit this awesome non-profit. I’m proud to say the event generated $450 and more than 200 dresses for Kenzies Closet! I just had to share this press release with you about it!

Readers of online women’s publication donate funds and clothing for local teens

Cincinnati, OH — January 1, 2012– Cincy Chic, the only online publication for women in Greater Cincinnati, raised $450 and collected more than 200 dresses at its recent “Wearable Art Fashion Show” to benefit Kenzie’s Closet.

The Oakley-based non-profit organization makes high school prom dresses and related accessories available to students who can’t afford them so that no young woman in Cincinnati will have to miss her prom because of family financial limitations.

Cincy Chic’s Wearable Art Fashion Show was held in July 2012, and attendees were asked to either donate $10 or a gently used dress for access into the event. Since then, the funds were tallied and dresses have been sorted and inspected. In total, $450 and more than 200 dresses will contribute to Kenzie’s Closet’s mission to aid economically disadvantaged girls from schools throughout Greater Cincinnati.

“I’m so proud of the hundreds of Cincy Chic readers who came out to show their support through cash and clothing donations,” says Cincy Chic publisher Amy Scalia. “As the founder of this online publication for women in Cincinnati, nothing makes me happier than to see local ladies lending a hand to help the next generation of women.”

Kenzie’s CLOSET and Dhani Jones Team Up!

Think back to your high school days. Looking back, there is one night that you plan to make the one night you’ll remember with the friends you will never forget: Prom.

The whole last few months in school before summer are spent building up the courage to ask your dream date to go with you or waiting for him to ask you, and of course,  finding the perfect dress or tux.

Although your memories of your night might not be described as perfect — maybe “awkward” and/or “entertaining” instead — some people from your high school couldn’t go because they didn’t have the resources to do so. Maybe the money they did have was used to help their parents to pay the bills, or maybe they couldn’t work because they had to stay home everyday to watch their younger siblings so their parents could work. It really makes you think, doesn’t it?

Well, now those kids (who are facing even MORE money troubles with the bad economy) are getting the help and attention they deserve thanks to Kenzie’s CLOSET.

KC is driven by their mission to give the financially disadvantaged juniors and seniors of local high schools in our community the prom night they deserve by supplying them with dresses or suits and the necessary accessories that they otherwise couldn’t afford. In the last 6 years that the non- profit organization has been in existence, KC has dressed closed to 600 students.

This year the organization has the help of our Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, Dhani Jones. The proceeds from the newest bow tie in the NFL player’s collection of specially-designed bow ties for Jones’ “Bow Ties for a Cause” organization are going to immediately help with the expenses of KC to make their mission possible for 2011.

The bow tie also has a sterling silver bowtie-themed necklace to go along with it, for all the women fans of Jones, if an actual fabric bow tie doesn’t fit your style. The bow tie, which just recently landed a spot in USA Today, and necklace are available at the Kenzie’s CLOSET website here, and are priced at $57.00, which charmingly matches Jones’ jersey number for our Bengals.  So, go online and help the kids in our community. It’s a great cause, and just think what a difference you’d make on our next generation by making their prom night dreams come true!
