Dress to Impress!
This year my wild ideas took our Great Strides kickoff fund raiser to prom dresses. The concept was simple. We collected gently used dresses of all kinds and in turn sold them for $10 each all benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
It was so much fun to see the ladies come out and try on dresses. It was a bit crazy at times but everyone who came out enjoyed themselves and more importantly most left with more than one dress!
In all we collected nearly 80 dresses and probably sold half. The rest will be housed in our closet until next year :)
Dress to Impress raised $440 yesterday.
A huge thank you to the ladies who donated dresses:
Jeni and Melissa Olson
The ladies at the B.E. Hive
AND our raffle donations from Wine and Roses florist, Jefferson; B.E. Hive Salon and Spa, Jefferson; Tutto Pasta, State Street Madison; Mary Kay Kari Johnson.
We are hoping to make this another "annual" event!
