No one should avoid attending prom because of the cost of getting the right dress. The annual Prom Dress Exchange will offer more than 1,500 gently-used dresses on Saturday, March 3. Students will find a range of formals from minis to ball gowns, plus deeply-discounted (but limited) shoes, hair accessories, jewelry, and handbags for girls.
Dresses are provided to each attendee for a $10 donation or bring a gently-used outfit in excellent condition to exchange. Even if you don’t have the bucks, still plan to attend as no one will be turned away. The event runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at NOAH’S Event Venue.
Seamstresses will also be on hand to help with minor adjustments such as snaps and straps (and in some cases hems). Students should bring their I.D. For detailed information on what to expect, check out the Prom Dress Exchange’s website. 11885 N. Bradburn Blvd., Westminster.
