It’s always fun catching up with past Best Dressed winners and finding out about their experiences as nominees.
Cheryl and Phil Parish have infectious smiles and choose to live life to the fullest. But underneath their zest for life, it’s the impact they are making to raise awareness for the American Liver Foundation that makes them true winners.
As The Voice-Tribune’s Best Dressed of Louisville Presented by Churchill Downs begins to set the stage for this year’s event, we understand the importance of recognizing all those involved who work diligently to make sure their community is a better place to live. Community service never feels like a job or an obligation. We love it!
For the second year, The Voice-Tribune is thrilled to announce that the benefiting charity is Dress for Success Louisville. This nonprofit organization’s mission is not only to provide professional attire for women, but also to offer a network support system to remain self-sufficient in the work force.
Best Dressed VIP lounges and tickets are available now at www.voice-tribune.com. It’s sure to sell out, so don’t procrastinate on buying your tickets.
