Heightening awareness of these mind-blowing statistics while bringing the community together for a night filled with food and fun will help make a difference and create broader awareness of the human trafficking issue in Southwest Florida and nationally.

All proceeds raised through the Taste of Freedom event will benefit the Southwest Florida Regional Human Trafficking Coalition.

 

Great Event to Support Dress for Success SW Florida

They say beauty is only skin deep, but at Image Matters, we’d like to challenge that statement.

Beauty is deeply felt.

It’s that feeling of confidence you have when you know you look your best.  It’s a feeling of gratitude for all you have and all you can do for others.  September 14th we are hosting our first annual Beauti-FALL for a Cause event and this year’s recipient is Dress for Success SW Florida.  This great organization helps empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
