Everyone deserves to feel their best & your community wants to make it happen
We are proud to announce our 11th Annual Get Gorgeous For Grad event will begin April 1 running through 4. This is a special time of year when our community celebrates the achievements of young men and women as we donate new and gently used dresses, suits, ties, shoes and more to those who may not be able to afford such items for graduation. For the past 10 years more than 200 students have participated in GGFG and we are thrilled to launch this year’s event with the help of our very generous local shops and boutiques.
Registration is available to students graduating from grade 8 or high school. Space is limited!
