A Dress to Remember ... Collecting Prom/Formal Dresses, Shoes, Jewelry and Handbags

Collecting prom and formal wear to help every girl get to the prom!


I decided it's time to do something to help out some ladies who just don't have the means or funds to buy those formal gowns and dresses this year.
I'm collecting prom and formal dresses for kids who just don't have the money to buy one. We all know we've spent far too money on dresses over the years that now hang in the closet collecting dust. I know, I know all the girls think they'll wear them again one day and we all know they really won't.

So what I'm asking is for you to reach out to all your friends and help me collect those dresses, jewelry, handbags and shoes! Sometime in March I'll put the word out and ANY girl who needs a dress will be welcome to come and get one she likes!

I can't stand the thought of any girl missing out on the prom or formal dance because she just can't afford to buy a dress!

I can remember the day my Mom took me for my senior Prom dress. She really couldn't afford it I'm sure...but she told me to pick any dress I liked. I felt so special that day...every girl deserves to feel that!

So for my Mom and all your Moms who went without to buy what you needed to make your day one to remember....collect those dresses so we can all pass them on and help others girls have a DRESS TO REMEMBER!

As a footnote I do not have my prom dress! LOL I gave mine to a girl the year after my own prom and she looked absolutely stunning :)

You can leave a comment here or email me @ brancato11@comcast.net if you'd like to contribute some gently used dresses, shoes, jewelry and handbags!

If you are in need of a dress or know someone who is please have them email me and I'll keep them posted as to when distribution will begin!  Also recipients names will remain confidential.

Thank you!
