Say yes to the prom dress event
Fundraiser for St. Ann's youth group
JOPLIN, Mo — Slightly used prom dresses got a second life at the Say Yes to the Prom Dress event at Missouri Southern State University Saturday.
It’s the 3rd year for the dress resale event which benefits St. Ann’s Catholic church youth group.
Dress sellers paid fifteen dollars to support the youth group and set up shop. And then they sold dresses for the best price they can get.
Organizers say it is a great opportunity for girls to get those necessary prom dresses early in the season.
Bridget Carlton with St. Ann’s said, “It”s always helpful it’s early in the season so that’s helpful too. So girls are kind of early on in their dress shopping experience.”
Event proceeds will go towards St. Ann’s youth group trips.
