Area high school students and their families searching for that hard-to-find prom dress and accompanying accessories can visit Owens Community College in Perrysburg Township for the fourth annual Prom Dress Sale on Saturday.
The Prom Dress Sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. inside the Student Health and Activities Center located on the Oregon Road campus. Admission to this event is free and open to the public.
During the sale, high school students and their families will have the opportunity to choose from an assortment of over 400 prom dresses and accessories for minimal cost of $5 for dresses and 50 cents to $1 for accessories.
Featured items available for purchase will be gently used dresses, shoes, purses, gloves and jewelry, among other prom accessories. Additionally, shopping mentors will be available to assist individuals in their shopping experience, and a Mary Kay representative will be on hand to talk to participants.
The Prom Dress Sale was established to ensure that price is not an issue for high school students who want to have that spectacular prom experience.
All proceeds raised from the prom dress initiative will be used to benefit future community outreach activities for the Gay Straight Alliance Club, which is hosting the event.
The club was founded to raise awareness about a variety of issues and causes relating to the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community. Comprised of Owens students, employees and alumni, the group is committed to advocating for the acceptance of cultural differences, global unity, disability awareness and various needs that impact the surrounding communities.
For more information about the event, call 567-661-2569 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 2569.
