My teen volunteered with these folks for three years before heading off to college.

The gowns are gorgeous and there's thousands of them. Teens also get one free accessory to go with their free gown like a purse, shoes or set of earrings or a wrap. Just bring your valid student ID card. We get girls who drive from California and Washington just to get a free gown. The only drawback... there's quite a line. You may need to "camp out" a bit to get your dress. New venue for passing out dress this year is the Oregon Convention center.

You can also donate gently used gowns to the cause. It's a great event. joy.gif:joy:joy

I will be volunteering Sunday of this event. If your teen needs a fabulous gown that will make her feel like a princess, all you need to do is invest the time to stand in line!joy.gif:joy

I had a fabulous day volunteering. it was amazing. So many happy girls left with so many beautiful gowns.



They need more plus size gowns. if you know someone who is a plus size, ask them to donate their fancy dresses they no longer wear to us next year.
