Bay News - - FRONT PAGE - By Re­becca Mauger news@baynews.co.nz

Food, fam­ily, friends and fun are the in­gre­di­ents for a good din­ner party.

Dress for Suc­cess sup­port­ers can add fundrais­ing to themix if they de­cide to hold a Dine 4 Suc­cess fundrais­ing night.

Across the Bay of Plenty this Satur­day night sup­port­ers will be host­ing a din­ner party with fam­ily and friends to raise funds for Dress for Suc­cess.

Dress for Suc­cess is a non­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion which as­sists dis­ad­van­taged women and men to achieve eco­nomic in­de­pen­dence by pro­vid­ing net­works of sup­port, work at­tire and de­vel­op­ment tools.

“Din­ing on the same evening, while not all to­gether, makes it feel like we are united in mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to our lo­cal com­mu­nity,” says Bay of Plenty pres­i­dent Michelle Pley­dell. “Ki­wis love to en­ter­tain and with spring upon us, this is a great time to shake off win­ter and en­joy one of the first din­ner par­ties of the sea­son.”

“Cui­sine will be sup­plied by the host, while our foun­da­tion spon­sor Lion will be pro­vid­ing thewine and beer for the oc­ca­sion.”

The char­ity is hop­ing to have 300 peo­ple din­ing across the re­gion this week­end. Guests will be asked to do­nate $50 (or more) to at­tend events.
