Prom Dress Drive & Ex­trav­a­ganza

All Dolled Up

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke Len­noxville

Every­girl de­serves to feel like a princess on the day of her prom. But fancy dresses can be pricey, and when we con­sider the ad­di­tional cost of shoes, jew­ellery, hair and makeup, things start to add up. That’s why the Len­noxville and District Women’s Cen­tre and the Bishop’s Univer­sity Golden Key Hon­our So­ci­ety have teamed up to or­ga­nize a Prom Dress Drive & Ex­trav­a­ganza. Un­til the sec­ond week of May, th­ese or­ga­ni­za­tions are col­lect­ing dress do­na­tions; along with shoes, jew­ellery and any other ac­ces­sories that could make a girl’s per­fect prom out­fit a re­al­ity. On Fri­day, May 10th (from 4:30 to 9pm) & Satur­day, May 11th (from 9am to 5pm) the col­lec­tion of out­fits will be avail­able at Bou­tique En­core (178 Queen St in Len­noxville) dur­ing the Prom Dress Ex­trav­a­ganza: All Dolled Up at a small frac­tion of the cost (all dresses less than $20).

In ad­di­tion to the se­lec­tion of out­fits, a num­ber of young women will be there to help girls find the dress of their dreams among the store’s racks. On Fri­day evening, the stylists from Stu­dio Unik (241 Queen St. in Len­noxville) will be there to ad­vise girls on their hair­style op­tions. They will also be of­fer­ing 15% dis­count coupons to any­one who wishes to make an ap­point­ment to have their hair done on the day of their grad­u­a­tion. A seam­stress will also be present to make any al­ter­ation sug­ges­tions needed. A num­ber of or­ga­ni­za­tions and busi­nesses have jumped on board in or­der to make this event a re­al­ity and make the road to prom as ex­cit­ing and stress free as pos­si­ble for girls and their fam­i­lies.

Ul­ti­mately, this event not only en­cour­ages you to clean out your clos­ets for a good cause, but to make many a girl’s prom dreams come true. So, please dig through your clos­ets; ran­sack your at­tics; base­ments and shoe-racks; pil­fer the jew­els you haven’t worn in years, and let them make a young lady in our com­mu­nity feel like a princess on the night of her prom. All pro­ceeds from this event will be gen­er­ated back into the com­mu­nity through Bou­tique En­core, a So­cial En­ter­prise run by the Women’s Cen­tre.
