The Story

EVENT DATE: May 13, 2017


Post event update: It was a great day!  The weather stayed dry.  The crowd was enthusiastic. The Swaggerers entertained.  The Power Walkers hoofed it around the pond.  Thanks to all who participated, donated, sponsored and volunteered in this event.   You can still make donations until June 15.  We can make this the most successful Shake, Swagger & Stroll to date!      


The day has come for the Shake, Swagger & Stroll for Dress for Success Charlotte, featuring the Power Walk and the Stiletto Swagger. Thanks to our Title Sponsor, ally, Silver Sponsors: McGuire Woods, Park Sterling, Synchrony Financial, Shaw Floors, Boingo Graphics, Flooring Solutions and Adams Outdoor, Bronze Sponsors:, Ellen Holliday, EY, and Accenture Credit Services, also Fitness Sponsor, Nettie Reeves' FUNky Fit. 


Join us at Freedom Park Saturday, May 13, 2017. Register to walk in the Power Walk  or get a team together to walk and raise money for Dress for Success.   And, watch as men from the civic and business community come together to "raise the heel" for women in the Stiletto Swagger! (Pictures form last year are in the slideshow.)  This year we will add a Judge's Panel to the Stiletto Swagger.  So be there to cheer on your favorite!


This year's MCs are Allison Latos, Anchor from WSOC-TV and TV64, and Riley Fields from the Carolina Panthers.


Last year we raised $25,000. This year our goal is $35,000.  Every $500 raised will provide one woman access to job preparedness, including up to 5 outfits, job acquisition, employment retention, financial education and career advancement services for an entire year!
