A lot of nice things are coming together Thursday night at an event benefiting the Habitat for Humanity of Hall County’s Women Build program.

In addition to a bottomless glass for beer or wine, prizes, food and jazz music also will be on tap at Stilettos & Studs. The event raises awareness about poverty and housing issues in Hall County. It will run from 6-9 p.m. at Tap It Gainesville Growlers, 1850 Thompson Bridge Road, Gainesville.

Guests are encouraged to wear their little black dress as part of the inaugural Little Black Dress Initiative this week led by the Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County.

“The participants wear a single black dress — or appropriate black attire for non-dress wearers like health care workers — for the entire week,” said Ann Nixon, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Hall County. “It is not washed as the week progresses.”

The dress represents the limited choices and limited resources of a person living in poverty, said Havolynne Saxon, president-elect of the Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County.

Admission to Stilettos & Studs is $30 in advance, $40 at the door and $20 for students with their ID.
