Project Prom Dress helps with cost of prom

On Sunday, the inside of Heiges Field House was transformed into a prom dress boutique for local high school girls, complete with shoes, jewelry and purses.

Tau Kappa, the women’s athletic sorority, has been collecting gently used prom dresses, homecoming dresses and accessories in Heiges Field House since the beginning of March.

The gently used dresses ranged from $5 to $30 depending on the style, and accessories ranged from $2 to $5 dollars.

The women of Tau Kappa collected dresses because they know what a financial stress special events, like prom and homecoming, can be and wanted to help local high school girls by alleviating the cost.

They were able to collect enough dresses to have several racks in all sizes and styles, and two tables of shoes, purses and jewelry to offer the girls who came to the sale.

Numerous styles of dresses were being offered to satisfy any girls’ taste for any occasion.
There were also signs reminding girls to plan ahead for other dancing in their futures.

Mothers and daughters were able to bond while happily looking over the racks of dresses until they found their perfect one for their special night.
