       Junior League Of Boca Raton’s Little Black Dress Initiative

      Planned For March 7 To 11 Will
      Raise Funds For Underserved

      Women And Children

         The Junior League of Boca Raton (JLBR) will launch
      the third annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI), a
      weeklong awareness campaign, March 7 to 11, to raise
      funds to help underserved women and children in Palm
      Beach and Broward counties.
         Junior League members that participate in Little Black
      Dress will wear the same black dress or outfit for five
      consecutive days to illustrate the restrictions poverty
      places on choices, opportunities, and access to resources.
      By wearing the same black dress or outfit, it symbolizes
      the somber situation and struggles that many members of
      our community face on a daily basis. Members will post
      their daily experience on social media channels pictured
      in the same dress.
