PROM DRESS DRIVE UNDERWAY!
Ladies, what did you do with your prom and homecoming dresses after you wear them once or twice? If you have beautiful dresses just hanging in your closet, consider donating them to Mardela’s first Dress Drive.
During the month of January, the high school orchestra will be collecting gently used prom and cocktail-style dresses. Dresses can be dropped off in the front office or to the band room.
All donated dresses will be sold during a dress night on March 3rd and 4th. The dresses will be sold for under $30 so all ladies can afford to go to their prom night. If you donate a dress, you will receive $5.00 off of dresses at the dress night!
Please consider donating! If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Coco.
