Walton Arts Center, KNWA and Dress for Success have joined forces to help women in Northwest Arkansas get back on their feet!
Plan to bring new or gently-used women’s winter coats, purses and professional shoes when you come see On Your Feet! The Emilio & Gloria Estefan Broadway Musical, Dec. 4-9, 2018.
Inspired by the powerful story of Gloria Estefan who overcame difficult odds when she came to the US as an immigrant from Cuba, worked hard to make it in the music industry and fought back following a terrible bus crash that nearly paralyzed her. The Estefan’s story, from humble beginnings to superstardom, is brought to the stage in On Your Feet!
Gloria experienced prejudice and obstacles as a woman in the music industry and is now known as a champion for women and other Latinas. Her music has inspired millions and influenced other artists like Selena, Shakira and Christina Aguilera.
With the same message and heart, Walton Arts Center and KNWA are joining forces this holiday season to collect women’s professional attire. These donations will be distributed through the Northwest Arkansas Chapter of Dress for Success. With a vision of a world where women do not live in poverty, Dress for Success strives to support the financial independence of women by providing programs and professional attire to secure employment and a network of support and training to help women have success in the workplace.
