(PHOENIX AZ… February 10, 2014) The law firm of Burch & Cracchiolo, P.A. is continuing its commitment to Dress for Success by collecting and donating business attire for women to support the non-profit Dress for Success. The campaign is spearheaded by B&C attorney Tonya Macbeth who is deeply committed to the organization and its mission. The law firm had added a new component to the drive by working in conjunction with DRI who is hosting their annual Women in Law conference in February 2014 in Scottsdale at FireSky Resort. Conference attendees are being encouraged to step up and support the cause. Burch & Cracchiolo is a conference sponsor.
“You can have the right experience, attitude and interview responses, but if you lack confidence in your attire, it can severely reduce your chance of securing that job,” comments Macbeth. “We at B&C appreciate the opportunity to support women who are just beginning their careers. This drive is a great way to get involved in the community.”
