Budget-minded high school girls looking for great prom dresses at modest prices will get some help from Wilkes University students in March. Students involved in the University’s Relay for Life event benefiting the American Cancer Society are collecting gently used prom dresses from now until March 16.
The dresses will be sold on March 16 at an event on the first floor of the Henry Student Center, 84 W. South St., Wilkes-Barre, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The minimum donation for a dress will be $20. All money raised will be contributed to Relay for Life.
Individuals wishing to donate dresses for the sale can bring them to a collection table in the Henry Student Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 19, 26, March 12 and March 14. Dresses also will be accepted on the day of the event, but individuals interested in donating them are urged to drop them off earlier if possible. Please note that there will be no dresses collected during the week of March 4 when Wilkes University students are on spring break.
Prom dresses donated should be clean and in good repair. For more information, please contact event organizer Katherine Cirone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
