The 5th annual Ultra Chic Prom Boutique takes place Saturday, February 25th.
Lisa Sekundiak, Vice President and Owner of Max I. Walker, says she was inspired to start the event after looking through her own closet of gently used formal wear. She says the company asks people to look through their own closets, and consider donating any unwanted bridesmaids gowns or prom dresses.
Sekundiak says Max I. Walker cleans all the dresses and then displays them all at the boutique. Each dress is sold for $25. Sekundiak says the prom boutique features more than dresses.
"Anything prom-related is going to be there. We’ve got tuxedos, we’ve got hair, and we’ve got make-up. We have a florist. Anything prom-related you would have a question about, we are going to have there that day. We are going to have hourly raffles to give away extra little goodies, all kinds of fun things.”
All proceeds from the dress sales go to the Lydia House. The Ultra Chic Prom Boutique takes place from 9 to 3 on Saturday, February 25th.
