Girls who don’t want to spend a small fortune on their prom or graduation dress could save some money when the Sierra High School Sober Grad Committee conducts its first annual “gently used” prom dress fundraiser.

The Sober Grad Committee will offer slightly-used formal and semi-formal dresses at discount prices to raise funds for their safe and sober after graduation celebration.

The fundraiser will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 4, in the Sierra High School Drama Room just in time for prom and 8th grade graduation. Sierra High School is located at 1700 Thomas Street.

“This is a win/win situation for both parties,” said coordinator, Sharon Amick. “People who donate a dress can either get 40% of whatever their dress sells for or donate the entire sale price to the Sober Grad Committee fundraiser and have a 100% tax write-off.”

Kelsey Amick, a SHS senior who is helping her mom with the fundraiser said she’s donating a dress and will put the money from the sale toward the purchase of a new dress for this year’s prom.

“This is a great way to help someone else afford prom and make a little money too,” said Kelsey.

Dress donations may be dropped off, until the event date, at the following locations:

•Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Edward Jones Investments, 1144 S. Main St., Manteca (next to Dairy Queen).

•Monday-Thursday 7 to 9 p.m. at 1257 Burgundy Lane, Manteca.

•Sunday 12 to 3 p.m. at 1181 Blue Teal Court, Manteca.

If none of the above times fit your schedule, contact Sharon Amick at 815-5590 or Dodie Goulart at 825-7098 to make other arrangements.
