One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the 2018 Red Dress Soiree will be donated to REACH Bahamas.
REACH is a non profit organization that has been in the trenches for more than 15 years promoting Autism awareness and education in The Bahamas and providing free services and resources for children and families affected by Autism.
Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in The Bahamas. While specific numbers are not available for The Bahamas, Autism affects 1 in every 68 children according to the Centres for Disease Control.
REACH hopes to raise the funds necessary to employ a full-time speech therapist to increase the availability of therapy to those individuals who desperately need it but cannot afford it.
The Red Dress Soiree has raised more than $60,000 for nonprofits benefitting children and adolescents in need since 2012.
