PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP - Area high school students and their families searching for that hard-to-find prom dress and accompanying accessories at minimal cost are invited to visit Owens Community College for the third annual Prom Dress Extravaganza on Saturday.
The Prom Dress Extravaganza will take place from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in the college's Student Health and Activities Center.
Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
During the event, high school students and their families can select from an assortment of over 400 prom dresses and accessories for minimal cost ranging from $5-20 for dresses and 50 cents to $5 for accessories.
Featured items available for purchase will be gently used dresses, shoes, purses, gloves and jewelry, among other prom accessories.
Shopping mentors will be on hand to assist individuals in their shopping experience.
The event is being hosted by the Raising Awareness Club (RAC) at Owens and Springfield High School Academic Boosters
"The Prom Dress Extravaganza was established to ensure that cost is not an issue for high school students to receive a special prom experience," said Nicole Buccalo, Owens student activities assistant and RAC adviser.
All proceeds raised from the prom dress initiative will be used to benefit future community outreach activities for the Raising Awareness Club and the SHS Academic Boosters. The RAC is comprised of Owens students, employees and alumni.
