In Memory of Barbara Dell, SW Florida Dress for Success Founder

In Memory of Barbara Dell, SW Florida Dress for Success Founder

In recent news you may have heard that our community suffered a great loss on New Year’s Day, that loss was our beloved Barbara Dell.  Of course, she wasn’t just any woman; she was an entrepreneur and a visionary that turned out to be a true blessing for all the women that walked through the doors at Dress for Success in Southwest Florida.

Barbara was unstoppable. Her presence would light up a room and she was a true inspiration to all women; not just as a leader but also as a friend.   She was the type of woman that inspired everyone with her constant passion to help the women of SW Florida turn their lives around.

Our company first became involved with Dress for Success due to the volunteers’ enthusiasm at one of their first Shop for Success events at the Bell Tower in Fort Myers.   There was no job too big or too small for any of the volunteers because it was delightful helping a good cause and working under Barbara.  Read more here. 

She will be truly missed but will live in our hearts forever. We can all commemorate a great woman not only by supporting Dress for Success but other charities as well. Pay it forward for Barbara; she would have wanted it that way.

A celebration of Life held for Barbara at the Broadway Palm on February 8th at 2:00-4:00.
