Prom-O-Rama deemed a success by Tucson College | Community Spirit
Prom-O-Rama came to Tucson, and was deemed a success. Tucson College helped collect more than 575 prom dresses. These dresses were gathered from women in Tucson and surrounding areas that wished to sell dresses (formal) they no longer wanted to wear. All in an effort to help keep costs down for Pima County high school girls who planned on attending their proms.
This was designed as a community service event to help teenage girls and their families find a beautiful dress at a cost they could afford. All of the money received for the dresses went directly back to the seller; there was no profit made for Tucson College. All dresses at the event were priced between $0 and $150. Dresses, which were donated, were given to girls for free. Some of the dresses registered to sell were brand new with the tags still on them. Others were gently worn. The donated dresses that were left over were donated to Cinderella’s Closet after the event.
The sale started on February 23 at 10 a.m. and ended at 2 p.m. Not only were there dresses available at the Prom-O-Rama, but multiple vendors as well. Several of the following vendors were at the event and offered 18 door prizes to be won by the students, like free spray tans, free tux rentals, and free photography sessions.
The following were just a few of the vendors who participated in the event: Connecting Threads Std., Hem and Her, Goodwill, Beach Bunnie Tanning, Gadabout SalonSpa, Sam Pappas Photography, Domino’s Pizza, Premier Designs, Asian Eyebrow Threading, Evergreen Florist, Limoport Transportation, Savers, Nails 2 GoGo, and other vendors with prom accessories.
Tucson College is thanking SS Customs AZ and Salpointe Catholic High School “Fashion-In-Action” club for helping with the event. They also hope to make the next Prom-O-Rama event bigger and better.
