Over 1400 Prom Dresses Donated

Summary of the Don’t Stress Over the Dress event sponsored by The Shelly Company, Chopin Hall and the Findlay Mall, provided the Shelly Company

Well, another year has come and gone.  Some may say, “You’ve seen one dress you’ve seen them all”, but with close to 500 dresses donated this season, this was not the case. We started the event with 1417 dresses.

The “Don’t Stress Over the Dress” event was held on March 8th, 9th and 10th at the Findlay Mall. We sponsored  this event again this year with Chopin Hall & the Findlay Mall.

We had  237 girls register from 58 different schools in Ohio.  We were able to provide 188 dresses to girls from 45 different schools. 

We opened up Sunday’s event to the public for those ladies who might need a formal dress for a special event (wedding or banquet) and we had 11 people register with 10 ladies taking a dress.

At the end of the event, we were able to donate 100 dresses to the West Toledo Library Branch for their prom dress event which will be held in April.  The person organizing the event contacted our office yesterday and will displaying The Shelly Co. on their sponsor banner for the event. He was very appreciative of our donation and could not thank us enough  We were also able to provide 25 dresses to a sorority which collects dresses for Fairy Godmothers organization (another prom event).

This event would not be possible without the support and the help from everyone who volunteered.  We greatly appreciate your time and energy!!
