      (LBDI), a weeklong awareness campaign, which was held March 27 to 31, to raise funds
      toward its mission and to help underserved women and children. The kickoff reception was
      held at The Seagate Hotel & Spa on March 9 where attendees enjoyed canapés and drinks
      and wore black dresses to raise awareness for the campaign.
         Junior League members who participated in Little Black Dress wore the same black dress
      or outfit for five consecutive days to illustrate the restrictions poverty places on choices,

      on a daily basis. Members posted about their daily experience on social media channels
      pictured in the same dress or black outfit.
