Colonie’s “Pay Less for the Dress” Event
If you or someone you know may have a hard time affording formal wear for prom this year, take a look at the “Pay Less for the Dress” event coming up.
If you already have prom on the mind, but worry about your ability to pay for a dress for the event, come to “Pay Less for the Dress.” Hundreds of prom dresses are being collected at Colonie Central High School, according to News10.
On March 22nd, students who need it can purchase a dress for $9.95 can purchase a time slot before the date for $5. The event will be at Proctors and proceeds will benefit the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center & the Proctors Scholarship Fund.
The goal for dresses was 300 dresses but they already passed it so now, they’re hoping for 500 before the event. If you have a gently used formal dress you’d like to donate for the event, you can drop them off at your nearest Best Cleaners location.
