The YWCA Junior Board of Directors is gearing up for its 9th annual Prom Dress Sale February 23-25, which will feature hundreds of gently used prom dresses, shoes and accessories. A community service project of the YWCA, the Prom Dress Sale features all dresses for just $25 each; high school girls can also inquire about scholarship vouchers from their schools or the YWCA.
The sale will take place in the gymnasium at YWCA Bristol, 106 State Street in Bristol, Tenn., from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. February 23 and 24 for students only. On February 25 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon the event will be open to the general public. “We will have several volunteers at the sale to assist with selecting dresses of all styles, lengths and sizes to help each girl feel special in the gown she selects,” said Tammy Henkel, Director of Mission Advancement.
Dressing areas will also be available at the sale.
The YWCA Junior Board of Directors is a diverse group of young women ages 20-40 who have a desire to acquire more leadership and service skills within the community. Their goals are to build awareness and support of the YWCA in the younger adult segment and to enhance and support the mission of the YWCA.
The YWCA accepts prom gown donations year around. Additional drop off locations are at the Virginia Highlands Community College Financial Aid Office and the East Tennessee State University Women’s Resource Center.
