The first Little Black Dress took place in South Bend in 2007 as a small gathering of Goodwill friends who enjoyed food, fashion and fun!  Most importantly, the mission of Goodwill Industries was shared with all who attended the event.   What began as a modest event has grown into a bi-annual gala with a spring event held in South Bend, Indiana and a fall show in Merrillville, Indiana.
At the heart of the Little Black Dress is still the focus on honoring those individuals and companies who are a part of the Goodwill mission of strengthening communities and empowering individuals and families through education, training and job placement.
And the shopping is great…!
