Dress for Success Greater Orlando has been selected as MCA’s charity of choice for the 2018 Ms./Mrs. Corporate America Competition. Dress for Success Greater Orlando is a 501 (c) (3), whose mission is to help disadvantaged women prepare for job interviews, so they can become self-sufficient, production members of society.
Being Ms./Mrs. Corporate America goes beyond business and beauty. The reigning Ms./Mrs. Corporate America will be responsible for giving back to their community. In an effort to support MCA’s charity of choice during the competition weekend, contestants are asked to bring a business suit or dress that they no longer wear. A Dress for Success representative will be present to collect the donations during the contestant orientation.
