2018 Dress Event
The Dress Event was held on March 24th from 12:00 to 4:00 at the St. John’s Hall in Dixonville.
We had 70 girls that found a dress of their choice for FREE. We had 737 dresses, so they were able to pick from a good variety of dresses.
Students from seven area school districts were able to shop for a free gown and other prom-related items such as shoes, jewelry, beauty products, etc. to offset the cost of attending the prom.
We would like to thank all the volunteers, people that donated their slightly worn dresses and local
businesses that helped this event to be a success.
See "Photos" for pictures and the article on the front page of the Indiana Gazette.
