Congress Ditches Clothes For Good Cause

July 17, 2012
6334619144_0fee129e42_z.jpgMembers from the House and Senate will compete on Wednesday over which chamber can shed the most clothes.

Settle down. It's part of the third annual Congressional Dress for Success Challenge, which pits representatives against senators to see which group can give away the most suits. The business attire will benefit D.C. women-in-need who can't afford to buy suits and are transitioning into the workforce. Senators won back in 2010, and the House won the challenge in 2009.

Honorary Co-Chairwomen Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger will each give a suit donation during a 10:15 a.m. reception.

The challenge, sponsored by FexEx, will run from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Senate-side donations can be dropped off at the Reserve Officers Association. House-side donations can be dropped off at a FedEx truck parked near the Capitol South Metro Station.
