Belle of the Ball is holding a dress drive on Saturday, February 20th from 9 am to 4 pm at 1805 College Avenue in downtown Racine near the lake. The drop off site is located on the East side of the street, not far from the corner of College and 18th Street and volunteers will be there to assist you in taking the items. If you would like a donation receipt, please let the attendant know.
"We are in need of gently used prom dresses in current styles," said Karri Hemmig, project co-director. "This means dresses purchased in the last four years that are clean and in good shape are most desirable. We are also in need for accessories such as shoes, handbags, jewelry and new makeup." If you are unable to attend this dress drive but would like to donate, the organization will be accepting dresses on March 5th and 6th at Wheaton Franciscan during boutique hours. Please visit www.racineprom.org for more information on hours and location.
Belle of the Ball is an organization that helps local junior and senior high school girls with the expense of Prom. "With the current economy, we feel the need will be greater than ever to help students and parents with an expense that may not be in their household budgets," said Krystyna Sarrazin, Belle of the Ball Founder.
