Versique recently hosted its eighth annual community event in partnership with local non-profits, Dress for Success Twin Cities and Simon Says Give at the Minneapolis Golf Club, and the results are in! Over 200 individuals attended and even more dropped off clothing/accessories and financial donations prior to the event, which was on Thursday, May 9th.
“Partnering with Versique for the seventh year has been wonderful for our organization,” said Stephanie Silvers, Executive Director of Dress for Success Twin Cities. “We rely on the financial support and volunteer involvement from companies and individuals in the community. We look forward to their partnership for years to come!”

The team shows up each year to volunteer for our events, provides monetary donations and this year added us to the line-up to the Dress for Success Happy Hour event. We are thrilled to have our strategic partnership grow and are thankful to all that attended and donated to this year’s event! It’s one of my favorite events in the Twin Cities each year”.
