"Priceless Prom Gown Program"

"Because Memories Are Priceless" http://www.pricelesspromgownprogram.com/
We had a great time at our Fashion Shows! Now we would like to remind people about our cause. The "Priceless Prom Gown Program" The program was created and founded by Mrs. Carol S. Lanni during her employment at a local high school in the 2006/2007 academic year. The idea hatched when she was made aware that  a large part of the student body was not attending prom due to cost. We can help by donating slightly loved current style promand bridesmaid dresses , jewelry, hosiery still packaged, gift cards to local stores or mallsthat will help defray the cost of prom.
