Event Details

About the little black dress initiative (Abdi)

- Abdi is an international event among all junior leagues, how, ever ours is run a bit differently!

For the week prior to the gala we run a hard social media campaign, spreading awareness through our own social platforms and through conversation. League members wear the same black dress (or outfit) for 5 consecutive days, bringing awareness to the limited options women in poverty have for choice in fashion - we wear a pin that reads "Ask me about my dress" to open the conversation.

About the gala

Our Abdi culminates in a gala, where we get a little glam to do a whole lot of good! Our league's area of focus is youth aging out of the foster care system - that 18-24 'in between' age where there isn't much support or many services. We host the Abdi gala annually to increase awareness of this underrepresented demographic and to raise support for our fostering change fund - where this niche group of youths can seek scholarship dollars to support their career and educational goals (we’ve received asks as simple as a laptop to finish a ged or funding for a car repair to go on a job interview).

Donations from this gala directly support our cause as the dollars raised provided impact the Colorado springs youth.
