News 8's Angie Sharp and Denise Hnytka revealed the total during a special announcement on Thursday, September 5th.
A Collection Drive and a Summer Social Benefit was held in August 2019. During the Collection Drive, people could stop by WQAD and place donations in one of the flood boots worn by staff members and volunteers of Dress for Success during the record-breaking flood. The Summer Social was held the following two days at THE Market in Moline. Shoppers paid $5 to enter and all of that money went to Dress for Success Quad Cities. Vendors also donated a portion of their sales to the cause.

The Relocation Celebration Sale takes place Saturday, Sept. 14th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the nonprofit's temporary location at 4201 Elmore Avenue, Davenport (the old Beauty Brands building).
