It was just a little over a year ago that Jamaican Mommies Editor in chief donned High Tea attire and went for Tea with a cause and forged an ongoing relationship with a noteworthy local charity with a global network- The occasion, Dress For Success Jamaica's annual fundraising High Tea.
A year later and with the proceeds going to Dress For Success Jamaica's Career and Economic Development efforts, we are on board again and encourage your support for the event on International Women's Day, March 8, 2015 at 4:00 p.m.
With the theme being Dressed to the Tea: A Blooming Tea Affair, it seems poised to be an the perfect opportunity to grab your girlfriends and get dressed for a cause (Don't feel left out though guys, gentlemen are also welcomed).

According to Dress for Success Jamaica's Chairman/Founder, Charmaine Lewis, the High Tea continues to be one of the organization's biggest fundraisers and this year the theme was strategically chosen as it encourages every woman to thrive and bloom beyond their circumstances.
