To get one step closer to decluttering your closet from clothing that you no longer wear or need we are hosting a Formal Dress and Suit Give Back. In collaboration with the Multicultural Masquerade Gala, we have decided to create a give back of old prom dresses, bridesmaids dresses, gala dresses, ball gowns or any men's dress or formal wear clothing pieces.

We will be accepting donations on March 1st, 3rd, 8th, 22nd, and 24th from 6 pm - 7:30 pm, during Latinos Unidos and Black Student Union's meeting times respectively in the Willow/Walnut Rooms.
Then, during the week on either March 22nd or March 24th stop into Willow/Walnut and see the stock to get a dress or suit.

All unclaimed items will be donated to Once Upon a Prom and you can learn more information about their organization here.

 We look forward to seeing you and being a part of helping make someone's gala Dream Come True!
