2024 Dress to Impress Gala banner

Please join us at Salvatore's in Lawrence, with their beautiful deck overlooking the Merrimack River, for a fun and inspiring evening of fashion and fundraising. Our fabulous fashion show is back featuring clothes and accessories from Uncommon Closet, modeled by our clients, volunteers and supporters. You'll also enjoy dinner and cocktails, as well as our silent auction and a wine pull! The highlight of the evening will be hearing from our inspiring clients as they share how Uncommon Threads has empowered them in their journey forward.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, including our exclusive Empowerment Sponsorship. Sponsorships are a great way to get your business in front of our attendees, as well as our website visitors.

Kimberly Bookman returns as our Gala emcee!

Kimberly is a reporter with 7News in Boston, where she won an Emmy for her reporting during the Blizzard of 2015, brought to light the fifth victim of the Boston Marathon attacks, and covered two Patriots Superbowl wins.

In addition to her support of Uncommon Threads, Kimberly has given back to the community through her work with numerous nonprofits, including Home for Little Wanderers, Pine Street Inn, Project Bread, and the Anti-Defamation League.

We are thrilled to have these accomplished young women walk the runway at this year's fashion show!
