A very worthy event as prom dresses and accessories can be very expensive.  Good for them!

Hi Gene

What a wonderful opportunity for those interested in sharing a former prom dress with someone who can use it! I'm impressed that you are also participating!! Hope it is a huge success...and the timing is good given when proms seem to occur! What a nice memorial!

Donating a prom dress to Melissa's Closet is an outstanding way to recycle a prom dress.

Good luck and success.
