Less than three weeks remain before the Cheyenne River Youth Project®’s eagerly anticipated 2016 Passion for Fashion event. That means donors and supporters have until Thursday, March 10 to send their new and gently used dresses, formal shoes, jewelry and accessories to CRYP’s East Lincoln Street campus.
“Each year, we try to get all donations in house a couple of days prior to Passion for Fashion,” explained Julie Garreau, CRYP’s executive director. “Our staff and volunteers need some time to sort all the donations by type and size, and to prepare them for roughly 100 teenage girls who can’t wait to have the opportunity to find just the right dress, shoes, and accessories for prom. It’s a true American rite of passage, and it should be one of the most magical experiences in their young lives.”
This year’s Passion for Fashion will take place on Saturday, March 12 at the Cokata Wiconi teen center and will feature the exciting (and timely) theme “The Force Awakens.”
