The spotlight certainly shone on the Classic Cleaners table at the September 22 Stepping Out in Style gala, the annual fundraiser for Dress For Success Indianapolis. This year’s function boasted one of the largest groups of supporters ever, with close to 900 attendees stepping out in “dressed for success” style.
At the gala, Classic Cleaners honored Dress For Success Indianapolis with a generous check. In August of each year, Classic Cleaners runs a special promotion. For every dry cleaning order of $20, the company donates $2 to DFSI. This year’s check of $13,780 represented the sum of those $2 donations!
Dress For Success Indianapolis, in turn, honored Classic Cleaners as its longest business supporter in Indianapolis. “Your support does not go unnoticed,” commented one of the guests to Classic Cleaners partner Steve Arnold.
While Stepping Out in Style is a very special occasion, the partnership between Dress For Success Indianapolis and
Classic Cleaners is year-round. Classic Cleaners acts as a collection site, accepting interview-appropriate suits and blouses on hangers. As needed, garments are dry cleaned, then delivered to DFS Indianapolis Boutique at 820 North Meridian.
Classic Cleaners also sponsors Super Sort, the culmination of Send One Suit Week (a clothing collection drive by local businesses, places of worship, and organizations), by providing donors with a coupon for $10 or $20 off a dry cleaning order.
Dress For Success Indianapolis’ Executive Director Barb Ellsworth expressed her gratitude with enthusiasm: “I don’t know what we’d do without Classic Cleaners! Funny, that’s exactly what so many of our indianapolis dry cleaning customers say!
