PROMise sale keeps promise with proceeds
PRINCETON — Each year the teens around the area look forward to attending their prom and, of course, finding that special dress.
Proms can be expensive and for many families in today’s financially challenging times can mean disappointment. In an effort to help families deal with the high cost of prom and other fancy occasions, Amy Thompson, a member of the First United Methodist Church of Princeton had an idea. She asked the Church’s Council on Ministries, “What if we ask for prom dress donations and sell them at affordable prices so that anyone who needs a prom dress could buy one? The proceeds from the sale could benefit local benevolences who are involved in helping people.” From that inspired thought the “PROMise Sale” was born.
From June 2012 to March 2013 people donated their gently worn special occasion dresses resulting in 566 donated dresses by the day of the sale. Shoes, dresses, handbags, and even wedding and bridesmaids dresses were on display the morning of March 2.
