“Do you have short gowns for dates?”
“We recently received a large donation of short gowns.Therefore, in 2018 we will be offering these short gowns for girls who are going to Prom as dates. Because these are not for graduating students, we will be requesting a donation.”
Do you have Vintage gowns?
We have some vintage gowns and we are making these available to anyone, for any event. However, if they are not for a graduating student, we will be requesting a donation for these as well.
