Please join us for one of the East Bay's most memorable luncheon events. You will be inspired by our clients' stories of dreams and achievements, impressed by the loyalty and dedication of our volunteers, and moved by our community of generous supporters who make it possible for our clients to change their lives.

Guest speaking at this year's event will be Maxine Johnson, a former client of Wardrobe for Opportunity, a Pathways to Opportunity graduate and terrific success story. Maxine will be speaking of the change that Wardrobe for Opportunity made in her life. She is currently a paralegal at the Law Office of John L. Burris and attending law school at San Francisco Law School. The principal of the law firm at which she works, John Burris, will introduce her at the luncheon. The event will also honor two Clients of the Year who have overcome significant challenges to become economically independent.

Proceeds support the Wardrobe for Opportunity mission to provide professional clothing and career support to low-income job seekers so they can secure employment and become economically self-sufficient.

Event Highlights
* Special Guest Speaker: Maxine Johnson, former Wardrobe for Opportunity client
