Cleaning out your closets? Donate your “gently used” prom dresses and formal gowns to the 4th Annual WSLM SAY YES TO THE PROM DRESS event set for Saturday, March 10 from 1-3p at Linck’s Clothing in Salem.
WSLM RADIO is collecting prom dresses and gowns as well as all accessories — purses, shoes, gloves, jewelry and hair accessories — for the upcoming event for girls in the WSLM listening area of Scott, Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Orange, Lawrence, Jackson and Madison.
“I know some girls don’t have the resources to go to the prom,” said Becky White, WSLM Owner and General Manager. “My goal is that any girl who wants to go to the prom, can get a dress at this event and have the chance to not only look beautiful on the outside but to have an experience that makes her feel like a princess on the inside.”
“Prom season is upon us and I want all the girls in the Kentuckiana area to experience the prom,” said White. “Linck’s has been very generous in allowing me to store the dresses there and also gracious in allowing us to hold the event there this year.”
The event is free and open to teen girls in the Kentuckiana area.
Staff from Linck’s Clothing will be on hand to show off Tuxedo’s and to assist with alterations. Rita Lincks will also have purses, shoes and other prom accessories for sale.
“Girls can come in and see the latest fashions. We have over 300 beautiful dresses that are new or gently used items that have been donated. They will help make your prom night affordable and unforgettable,” said White.
There’s still time to donate dresses, gowns and accessories.
Bring your items to WSLM RADIO, 1308 East Hackberry Street during business hours or to Linck’s Clothing in Salem.
