As Fashion Week gets underway in Paris, a group of motivated Cayuga Community College students are helping to bring last season’s prom dress fashions into the spotlight again. The Prom Dress Project, a charitable initiative founded by Cayuga’s Tutor Club last year, will offer donated, gently used prom dresses to high school girls for a discounted price, while raising money for a local charity.
The Tutor Club will hold its annual prom dress sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, March 5-6 in the Student Lounge at Cayuga Community College, 197 Franklin St., Auburn. The more than 200 donated dresses range in price from free to $30.
In addition to the dress sale, there will be a cookie sale, hosted by the Early Childhood Club. The Cayuga Telecommunications Department will provide a DJ to spin some tunes during the event.
The money from the sale will be donated to Lunches with Love at Holy Family Church in Auburn.
Last year, the club raised $2,000 for charity and outfitted 200 high schools with dresses for their prom.
In order to serve the largest number of students possible, there is a limit of one dress per patron, and the individual must be present at the sale.
