CHAPMANVILLE — Every girl knows what it takes to assemble all the pieces to look perfect at prom. The expense may pose a problem for families already affected by the hardships of today’s economy. Students at Chapmanville Regional High School hope to give back and support the community by hosting a pre-owned prom dress sale on February 23, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the CRHS cafeteria.
Students participating in the sale are working hard now to collect dresses and accessories including shoes, jewelry and hand bags. Any girl in the school may bring in dresses. The prices are as low as $10 and go upwards of $200 — it varies depending on the dress. As each dress comes in, it is assessed and a price is agreed on. Each dress is numbered, so nobody will know who wore which dress.
‘Most of the girls are just very eager to be able to pass the dresses on for someone else to enjoy and gain some closet space,” said Julie Alterman, who is coordinating the sale, “The students are very excited to be able to earn money to put towards their new dresses, as well as offer others the opportunity to buy a dress at a reasonable price.”
The dresses are required to be stain free, odor free, and in good overall condition.There will dresses of all sizes, lengths and styles. There will be dressing room space provided to try on the dresses.
The sale is the first of its kind in the area, and it offers an excellent opportunity for girls from middle school or high school to shop, as well as women who need formal wear for a special occasion or on a cruise. Dress previews will be available at www.facebook.com/tigernationtv.
