The Hope and Friendship Foundation is seeking donations of gently used or new formal and semi-formal women’s, children’s and men’s dress clothing, dress shoes in all sizes, purses and jewelry – for its fifth annual prom and dress clothing resale and consignment sale.
The sale, which will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at Christ Community Church at 13400 Bell Road, offers an option for shoppers who can’t afford new dress clothing for special occasions such as prom, graduation, confirmation, first communion, Easter and spring formal dances.
Dresses to be sold on consignment and dress clothing donations may also be brought to Christ Community Church from 9-10 a.m. on Friday, March 1.
Feb. 10 Kick-off for Event to Benefit Local Man
The clothing resale collection event will kick off with an “open mic with a purpose” for all ages from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, at Front Street Cantina at 319 Front St. in downtown Lemont. The event will feature guest bartender Michelle Nevin and a chance to entertain and be entertained at the open mic.
Participants who wish to donate a formal/semi-formal dress or dress clothing may do so at the event. Monetary donations will also be accepted and funds raised at the Feb. 10 event will benefit the family of Tim O’Neil, who suffered a debilitating stroke this summer and whose insurance for rehabilitation ran out last week.
Certificates for donating 10 percent of your bill at Front Street Cantina to the cause are attached to this story – just print one out and bring it with you when you dine at the restaurant between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. Feb. 10.
