HASTINGS – The YWCA will be doing their Gowns For Good fundraising sale on February 15-17 and February 23-24.
This sale is an opportunity for people to get dresses for prom or homecoming at an affordable price. These dresses are purchases so you aren’t just renting them. The YWCA is currently taking donations for the Gowns For Good sale. They will take dresses up until February 15.
Carissa Uhrmacher, the Career Services Coordinator, says that this can help ease the expenses of prom.
Prom is expensive, it costs a lot by the time you have shoes and jewelry and you probably go out for supper and do your hair. We want to make prom affordable for everyone. And dresses can be really expensive, so this might be a great way to re-use dresses. I know a lot of girls that buy dresses so we get great donations. So we want a place for people to donate dresses but we also want a place where you can come try on a whole bunch of different styles and find the right fit. And hopefully save some money so that you can use it on those other fun things
All the funds from this will go to the YWCA’s youth programming. Like their Zone program, which is a free after school program for middle schoolers.
All of this can be found on Facebook by searching Gowns For Good or on their website, ywcaadamscounty.org.
