The Exchange collects gently-used evening gowns throughout the year from a multitude of women and organizations throughout the metro area.
Organizer Cheryl Wise says the Exchange offers donors the chance to share their personal good fortune and prosperity with a young lady whose family, for whatever reason, can't afford the expense of a dress.
If you know of young prom-goers who may need a dress, she and others are invited to attend The Prom Dress Exchange.
This year's Exchange is scheduled for:
When: Sunday, March 16, 2008
10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Where: Copper Fields Events Chateau
4901 Marshall St., Wheat Ridge
(I-70 & Wadsworth)
Girls do not have to prove any need and there is no charge to attend the exchange. A $10 donation is greatly appreciated if a girl is successful finding a dress. This donation is used to offset the costs of cleaning and storing the gowns, as well as purchasing clothing racks, hangars and garment bags.
Want to donate a dress? It's easy. Dresses should be in good condition and in a plastic bag of some type. Simply leave the bagged gown at Copper Fields' front door any time of day or night. Dresses are accepted year-round and no appointment is necessary.
