What To Wear To Solutions For Change 5th Annual Gala At Jet Source

Solutions For Change will hold its Fifth Annual Gala on Saturday, September 19th, 2015 to celebrate 750 families that are no longer homeless in San Diego. Read on for tips on what to wear. This innovative organization has developed a sustainable model for ending homelessness permanently through education and work experience via its own enterprises that provide revenue to fund its programs.  The Solutions For Change Gala is not just any charity event, though.  This year, the organization is creating a truly unique experience with an exceptional dinner by Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse at the Jet Source hangar.

What To Wear To Solutions For Change Gala

Dress code is black tie optional. Long gowns and tuxedos will be perfect for the affair at JetSource. This unique experience at JetSource will feature a red carpet with numerous photo opportunities.  As this will be the gala of the year, we recommend reserving your best.

Black Tie for Men:

Men should wear a tuxedo, but wearing a dark suit is just as acceptable, as long as it is conservative. Channel your inner James Bond.

Black Tie for Women:

Since black tie is optional, ladies can opt for cocktail dresses if desired.  If you choose a cocktail dress, be sure it is dressy enough to take photos and stand with the gentlemen in tuxedos as well as ladies in long gowns. Cocktail dresses should be knee-length or midi-length, which is very in vogue right now! Full skirts and blouses can be a black tie alternative, especially if you have heels that you want to show off.

When choosing a hair style for the evening, an up-do can help to push a cocktail dress look into the black tie category. Pair an up-do with large statement earrings, which are back on trend for the fall 2015 season.  As the evening becomes chillier, a cashmere shawl or a fur or faux fur wrap may be necessary. Black tie is very much about classic and timeless occasions.  Choose a color that makes you feel elegant.

What is Solutions For Change?

Solutions for Change is solving homelessness for families by providing them with the skills and resources to live independently.  Family homelessness is an ongoing problem because the root cause is never solved.  Public programs offer shelters and subsidized housing that temporarily remove families from homelessness.  Solutions For Change has a 3-pronged program — as described below — and has already permanently solved homelessness for 750 families, including 1,450 children.

Solutions For Change 3-Pronged Program

  1. Solutions University – 1000 day life transforming programs including counseling services, parenting classes, employment training and work experience to provide the foundation for a successful future for each family.
  2. Solutions Enterprises – housing development and aquaponic farms that act as a platform for training individuals on life skills and work experience. These social enterprises provide revenue for the organization which is invested back into its programs.
  3. Solutions in the Community – individuals and families that have been helped continue to volunteer and stay involved, influencing others in a positive way.
