CHATHAM, NJ - Jude Connally and her team were thrilled to share their mission of allowing women to look good and feel great through what they wear. Jude, who designs and markets beautiful printed dresses, brought a vast collection of her beautiful prints and styles to a “friends and family” gathering benefiting the Relay for Life team of  XYZ.

The event was held at and hosted by Melissa Evans along with Geradina Callahan and Joanne Morris, all of Chatham. 

The event started at 7 p.m. and the moment guests arrived, they were met with a fabulous array of dresses, tunics, and skorts and tops, in lots of colors and unique styles. 
From skorts and tank tops to tunics and Jude's classic dresses, there was something there for everyone. "I love spreading the positive energy that comes with every piece of our clothing" states Jude. Along with adding beautiful clothing to their wardrobes, a portion of the proceeds from the night is being donated to Relay For Life, making the night about much more than shopping.
