Oklahoma leads the nation in the number of women incarcerated. Once they are released, many end up homeless with little job opportunities and need to re-learn job skills.

"Dress for Success" opened in May and provides clothing, interview and resume workshops for clients who are referred to them. Thursday night, the “More than a Dress Gala” will be held to raise money for the group.

There will be a live and silent auction, and clients will share their experiences of how "Dress for Success" has helped them get back on their feet.

News 9's Rachel Calderon will serve as emcee. The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Downtown/Midtown.

Tickets are still available, and you can purchase them here.
