On Wednesday, August 12, 2015, twelve members of WIN @ LBMC volunteered with Nashville's Dress for Success Organization. LBMC's WIN was founded to attract, retain, develop and encourage the advancement of professional women with LBMC, PC.

"We arrived at 9 a.m. and participated in various activities until noon," said the group's Tess Mazzoline. "We sorted through donated clothing, and then steamed, hung up, and tagged the clothing as well as cleaning and organized the store front where the items are housed."
Dress for Success was a perfect fit for WIN efforts to support and empower women. A good time volunteering was had by all, and WIN looks forward to future opportunities for LBMC to assist their cause.
