Choir’s prom dress sale worthy of exploration

Our View

Prom only comes once a year, but is that an excuse to spend hundreds of dollars?

Here at the high school, the women’s choir is “fighting” against the epidemic of overspending and raising money for the choir program, which has experienced a budget cut this school year.

The choir is selling reused and recycled prom dresses for much lower rates than what you’d find at a typical boutique or shop.

Choir director and “CEO” of the Something Elegant fundraiser Kendra Wohlert is excited about putting this event on for its second year now.

“The women really get into it and have a lot of fun. With the budget cut for music this year, it really is a good fundraiser for us, too. We love being able to give women an option to find a beautiful dress at a great price. I also like to encourage buying things second hand in general, and this is a great way to support that way of thinking,” Wohlert said.

Here is a list of times that the girls will be showcasing their inventory to the public: Friday, March 5 (Sneak Peek Fashion Show) from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Saturday, March 6 from noon to 4 p.m. and Sunday March 7 from noon to 4 p.m.

We encourage you to stop by and check out the offerings. Prom doesn’t need to burn a hole in your wallet, and this cost-saving option would keep your money right in the high school!
