DENVER - If you know a teenager who wants to go to prom, but can't afford the clothes, please tell them about the annual Prom Dress Exchange on Saturday, March 15.
"The 2014 Prom Dress Exchange is here to help provide a spectacular, one-of-a-kind outfit for just $10," said Laura Bauer, president of the non-profit Prom Dress Exchange Corporation. "We have approximately 2,000 dresses."
Admission is free, but if a teenager finds a dress they will be asked to show a valid student ID and donate $10.
"Seamstresses will be available onsite to repair broken zippers, straps, snaps and adjust a hem," Bauer said.
The Prom Dress Exchange started 14 years ago.
This year the event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tebo Store Fixtures, 5771 Logan Street, which is across from the Merchandise Mart and next to the Wendy's off of I-25 and 58th Avenue.
The event is sponsored by Tebo Store Fixtures, LUPEC Denver, Ocean Cleaners of Commerce City, Communications for Your Business and Hollywood Cowgirl Bling Boutique. Donations of dresses, jewelry and money are always welcome. Learn more on the Prom Dress Exchange's website: http://www.promdressexchange.org/
