Hey guys…..do you have formal dresses stuck in the back of your closet? I have some. Why do we hold on to them anyway? Are you like me and keep thinking “Well, maybe I’ll wear it again one day if I can lose 10 pounds and if I get invited to the ball at the palace.” Uh. Yeah. Wouldn’t it be awesome to instead give it to someone in need? Someone who would enjoy a night at “the palace?”

My sister lives in Lexington, Kentuckyand is helping out with an event there. It’s called The Jesus Prom. The event is held for people in the city with disabilities. They get to come and enjoy a magical night of dancing and fun. BUT, they need dresses. They’re accepting formal dresses of all types and sizes.

I’m giving Jamey all three of my formal gowns that haven’t been touched in over 8 years…….I think 8 years is a tad long to wait for a ball at the palace. I’m SO excited to be donating to this event! Will you help me? If you’re local, I would love to take any formal gowns that you have to offer. Jamey and I will come pick them up or we can arrange a drop-off with you. Think about how wonderful it will feel to know that you’re helping to create a night of magic for someone in need. You can leave a comment, or send me an email. This event is being held at the beginning of November, so please try to get them to me as soon as you can. Thanks! :-)

Hey Guys! I am looking for your old formal dresses that are stuck back in the closet, collecting dust. The church I attend in Lexington, KY has a “Jesus Prom” every year for mentally and physically disabled adults. They need any type of formal dress, and plus sizes are particularly in need.Check out the Jesus Prom website for more information.~Stacy’s not-so-famous sister, Jamey

    That is awesome. I donated mine last spring at the collection box in Abingdon. I wish I’d held on to them now.

    I have a dress I would be willing to donate – the only problem is that I know it needs dry cleaned. During a photo shoot someone got some mud on it. I haven’t been able to afford to have it dry cleaned :( Would they be able to if I donated it? It’s a lovely pale green dress with a shoulder cover scarf and it is plus size. I think 18-20 and cut for a tall woman.
