We have something to celebrate– Join Us!

The Perfect Fit empowers unemployed women in the Lehigh Valley with the clothing, skills, and confidence necessary to find a job and build a career. For 21 years, the Perfect Fit has provided critical services at important transition points in the lives of 10,000 women and girls, allowing them to contribute economically to their families and community. The Perfect Fit’s services include professional and uniform clothing, mentoring, professional development workshops, and paid work experience and are needed more than ever to support the many women who were displaced due to the pandemic and to assist them as they rebuild their careers.
We do not do this work alone. The Perfect Fit is a true community collaboration. Our power comes from the women and girls we serve, and from our volunteers, referral partners, local businesses, clothing donors, and supporters who work together to empower us to transform the lives of women throughout the Lehigh Valley.
Thank you!

Event Registration

Join us on Friday, October 22, at 11 AM at the Lehigh Country Club. This year, we have two ways to register for our Outfit to Empower celebration:
  • In-Person Registration: The full luncheon experience, including networking, silent auction, raffles, wine pull, plated lunch, and featured speaker, Elaine Zelker, who will guide us to draft our own personal mission statements! Please note that we encourage vaccination for all attendees who plan to dine in-person at this event.
  • Hybrid Registration: Please join us in-person for the first hour of the event for networking, silent auction, raffles, and our wine pull. Then, we’ll box up your lunch “to-go” to enjoy at home or the office along with a brief video program. Masks are requested for all during the first hour of the event and until those who are dining in-person are seated at their table.
Thank you for your understanding and support as we provide an event experience that is mindful of the health and safety of our community and comfortable for all.
Can’t make it to the in-person event this year? We understand! You can also visit our event page to renew your Perfect Circle Membership, access our online silent auction (going live on October 15th!), purchase tickets for a chance to win gorgeous jewelry pieces from our raffle sponsor, Susan Bella Jewelry, or make a donation to support women in our community returning to work.

A Fundraiser Benefiting the Perfect Fit for Working Women
Watch Now!

We have something to celebrate! 2020 marked The Perfect Fit for Working Women’s 20th year of empowering women with the style and confidence they need to find a job and grow a career. During this celebratory year, our program reached a milestone as we served our 10,000th client!

We do not do this work alone. The Perfect Fit is a true community collaboration. Your financial gift, along with the support of our volunteers, referral partners, and local businesses, empowers us to transform the lives of women throughout the Lehigh Valley.

As a supporter of the Perfect Fit, you know that our mission is much more than clothing. Yes, we outfit women with a complete professional wardrobe tailored to their chosen careers. More importantly, we instill confidence and empower women on their journey to self-sufficiency as they build new lives for themselves and their families. 93% of Perfect Fit clients leave our boutique feeling more confident, professional, and prepared for their new careers, and more than 75% are more engaged in their job search. All of our services are designed and proven to improve employment outcomes for our clients.

Our 20th-anniversary celebration was hosted on Friday, October 16, in a virtual format as we remain mindful of the health and safety of our community. Though we would have loved to gather in person, we believe this gave us the opportunity to share our mission and heart and celebrate with even more people who now have the opportunity to join in!
