Students must show a high school ID Card and be accompanied by a parent or guardian over 18. Parents will have a designated waiting area. Parents are not allowed in the gown selection or dressing areas. Students are served on a first come, first served basis. There will be community volunteers to help each girl select a dress. Proof of financial need is NOT necessary to attend.
The gowns are free and there are no costs to attend. There is an event prior to the Community event, so girls arriving early will need to wait in line. The doors won't open until 2:00 p.m. Dressing rooms are screened from the gown selection area, but are not totally private. Consider wearing tights or camisoles if you are uncomfortable dressing in front of others.
Girls will have about 30 minutes to pick out a dress. Because of the volume of girls wanting a dress, we encourage you to choose quickly so all participants have a chance to shop. We will have volunteer seamstresses who can make minor repairs and alterations.
We need new and gently worn, quality formal dresses....both long and short. Dresses should be clean and on hangers. We also accept shoes, jewelry and other accessories. We especially need plus-sized dresses 16 and up.
