The second annual Dress Drive Extravaganza for used prom dresses is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. April 4 at the Carleton Lodge in Adrian.
Gently worn prom, pageant and formal gowns are needed for the event to help girls throughout the area attend prom, no matter what their financial status might be.
The event is coordinated by Sand Creek graduate Mekeisha Alcock.
All girls are welcome to browse the collection and buy a dress for $10. If a dress is brought in for exchange, the cost is only $5. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the Catherine Cobb Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network. Alcock is also seeking donations from area businesses for door prizes at the Dress Drive Extravaganza.
Alcock said she knows that not every girl is able to afford a new gown for prom and she also knows there are plenty of great dresses hanging in closets.
“Just remember,” Alcock said, “your dress could make someone’s prom night.”
Dresses can be dropped off at three locations: The Blissfield Advance; Closet Overflow in Adrian; and Creative Collections in Tecumseh.
Alcock also intends to increase and raise an understanding of her Miss Raisin River platform: “No Means No: Sexual Aggression Prevention and Awareness” by discussing prom night safety at the event.
