Barran Liebman is proud to support Dress for Success Oregon (DFSO), and October brought two fabulous events in which to do so. On Wednesday, October 5th, Barran Liebman was proud to attend the 4th Annual Dress for Success Oregon “In Her Shoes Empowerment Breakfast” held at the Sentinel Hotel in Downtown Portland. At this breakfast, hundreds of attendees were captivated by the triumphant stories that were told by women who have had their lives impacted by Dress for Success Oregon, and keynote speaker Sheila Hamilton, author and KINK FM Host. The stories shared were moving and there is no doubt that all attendees walked away with greater perspective. The empowerment breakfast was very successful and raised $60,000 to go towards supporting the women who come to Dress for Success Oregon to change their lives. Traci Ray, Executive Director at Barran Liebman and DFSO Board Secretary, was inspired by the powerful messages shared at the breakfast, and was thrilled when 12 new members joined the Little Black Dress Circle and made the commitment to a financial gift for the next three years.
On the evening of Thursday, October 13th, the Barran Liebman team was thrilled to attend and participate in the Oregon Women Lawyers (OWLS) Fashion Show at the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse in support of Dress for Success Oregon. Many supporters of OWLS participated in the fashion show, including our very own Damien Munsinger and Shayda Zaerpoor Le, who walked down the runway with Team Barran Liebman Kids, Anna von Munsinger and Ensley Ray. It was a fun evening for all, complete with delicious appetizers, cocktails, and a fabulous fashion show. The event raised over $10,000 for DFSO.
