MILLVILLE – In a room full of entrepreneurs on Friday, Dec. 3 at the Soul of the Sea Restaurant, Rich Burton held everyone’s attention as he talked with passion and conviction about his clothing business, Drippy Ricky’s.
Burton specializes in women’s, children’s and men’s fashion and accessories near Marshalls at Cumberland Mall. Opened on the weekend, Burton was in the midst of planning Fashion Show Gala at the Cornbread House at 1167 Bridgeton-Millville Pike at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 11.
“The fashion show is going to be a really nice event,” Burton said last Friday and he urged attendees to purchase tickets online for $35 or at the door for $40. Admitting he was not one for public speaking, Burton said there will be prizes for best dressed along with food and entertainment.
