Wings for Success empowers women in need to pursue employment and economic security through apparel, advice, and advocacy. By helping women access free, work-appropriate clothing and offering support and confidence-building, we help our clients make the best impression at interviews and new jobs. Ultimately, our goal is to help women gain financial stability and self-sufficiency for themselves and their families. With sites in Frazer and Kennett Square, we serve clients throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware. Since our start in 1997, Wings has helped more than 9,000 clients tackle this often overlooked barrier to employment and economic security.
Thank you for making our first Wine with Wings wine tasting a success!
Our first fundraiser in the Kennett Square area was a sold-out event! What a wonderful statement
about community spirit and interest in supporting Wings for Success and our clients! Nearly 150 people attended Wine with Wings, held at the Kennett Square Golf & Country Club on June 1. The wines,
provided by Patone Cellars, were popular, the food was delicious, the country club setting was beautiful,
and the silent auction was a sell-out!
Special thanks to our sponsors, auction donors, and the guests who attended.
Your participation and generosity make it possible for us to continue our mission to empower women in
need to pursue employment and economic security.
