Girls Night Out at Saks Fifth Avenue Benefits Legal Aid Society

On January 28, 2010, friends of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County enjoyed an evening of fashion, fun and philanthropy entitled "Just for Girls" at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Gardens Mall. Guests enjoyed cocktails and sushi hors d'oeuvres while learning how to accessorize their outfits and create their best look from work to weekend.

In addition to a fashion show and make-up consultations from Saks Fifth Avenue staff, Supervising Attorney Katy Oleksy made a presentation to guests on Legal Aid Society'sDomestic Violence Project and drew their attention to the services Legal Aid provides to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, dating violence and stalking.

The event raised over $2250 which will go to Legal Aid's Domestic Violence Project, which will help ensure emergency legal assistance to survivors of domestic violence and their families.
