Pasadena Prom Dress Drive to Benefit Local High School Girls

The Prom Dress Drive, organized by Victoria Williams and Nicole Sandoz, are two members of the League’s Done in A Day Committee. The drive is an exciting opportunity for the League to make a difference in the lives of local high school seniors.

Madison Avenue by the middle of this week. Dresses donated should be dry cleaned and bagged. For more information, contact The Junior League of Pasadena at 626-796-0244.

I think it's a great event to have in communities. I can imagine the girls going in and getting dresses, shoes and accessories. I hope it continues.
