BT Boutique (Prom Dress Drive)

 

Our students need your help.  One of our parents, Kristin Trammell, along with other parents and staff members are planning a prom dress event in April called, "BT Boutique".  Kristin and her sister started this event in 2007 to help girls look and feel their best on Prom night.  In order to make this event a success again this year, we are in need ofdonations of dresses in a variety of sizes (especially plus sizes).  These could be old dresses you have worn to weddings, bridesmaid dresses, or maybe your old prom dress you would be willing to part with.  If you would like to make a gracious donation for our girls, please bring the dress to Ramona De La Rosa at the front entrance of the school.

 

Also, Kristin is in need of volunteers to help with the appointments for the girls.  She is going to have the BT Boutique open on Wednesdays and Thursdays, in the month of April, from 3:00 until 4:20. 

 

We are also in need of dress racks.  If anyone would offer to let us borrow dress racks you may have at home, we would really appreciate it! 

 

 

Thank you for all you do!!!
