PHILADELPHIA’S FIRST EVER CITY-WIDE MAKEOVER EVENT STYLE ME HIRED
100 Unemployed Women Receive Complete Makeovers, Confidence and Hope
Philadelphia, PA (July 19, 2011) – Marc Voci, founder of Style Me Hired, is pleased to announce that The Career Wardrobe and the Omni Hotel at Independence Park are partnering with him to launch Philadelphia’s first and only makeover event providing 100 unemployed women complete transformations to re-enter the workforce.
On September 26, 2011, at the Omni Hotel at Independence Park, 25 salons across the region will provide the makeovers, which will change hundreds of lives. Women who are currently unemployed and actively seeking employment can apply to win a Style Me Hired Makeover at www.stylemehired.com. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for salons who want to join Style Me Hired.
Marc Voci, from Marc Voci Salon and Colorbar, is championing this cause. “Makeovers empower women,” Voci said. “Unfortunately, women who are out of work don’t always have the resources they need to transform their look. I’m excited to see the local beauty industry come together to create such amazing synergy.”
"We are thrilled to be working with The Career Wardrobe and other regional partners like Marc Voci who are dedicated to improving the lives of women. The Omni Hotel at Independence Park is committed to being a caring partner in the community. We look forward to great success and to making this an annual project," Chris Laufer, Director of Sales and Marketing.
The Career Wardrobe is the nation’s largest independent non-profit organization serving women transitioning into the workforce. Since 1995, they have assisted over 70,000 women. The organization will be outfitting each makeover winner with a professional outfit to compliment her makeover.
Career Wardrobe Executive Director Sheri Cole sees this makeover program as a step in the right direction for her clients. “Makeovers are all about change and improvement,” Cole said. “Style Me Hired winners will have a considerable leg-up during their job hunts and interviews. We appreciate the Omni Hotel’s generous support in this community relations program.”
Voci created the first Style Me Hired event in December of 2010 with five local women receiving makeovers. “The first event was so well received that we knew we needed to do it again on a much larger scale,” Voci said.
Women who are currently unemployed and actively seeking employment can apply to win a Style Me Hired Makeover at www.stylemehired.com. Online, women can upload a current photo and share their stories, all of which will be considered during the selection process. Women can also send their picture along with contact information and their story to Marc Voci Salon and Colorbar, at 448 MacDade Blvd., Folsom, Pa., 19033.
Marc Voci created Style Me Hired in 2010 with five makeover winners in his salon in Delaware County, Pa. With more than 20 years in the Philadelphia beauty industry, Voci brings Style Me Hired to Philadelphia with The Career Wardrobe and Omni Hotel to provide hope, happiness and life changing opportunities for women in our region. At the core of Voci’s business is happiness and his signature style reflects that mission. www.stylemehired.com
