The glitz and glamour of prom can a bit of a "right of passage," in the eyes of many teenagers, and one program in Hastings is helping to make it more affordable.
Whether they are long a blingy or short and sassy, the YWCA of Adams County is currently taking gently used dresses for their Gowns for Good program.
This is the 7th year of the program at the YWCA. Organizers say it's a great way to let go of those used dresses, and allows teens to purchase a dress at a fraction of the cost.
"We wanted this to be a way to reuse dresses, because a lot of times people use them one time and then don't know what to do with them. But we also wanted to make it affordable for all families. And we think it's a really great way, because you don't have to worry about where to sell your dress and it goes to a great cause," said Gowns for Good coordinator, Carissa Uhrmacher.
All gowns are just $30, with the proceeds going to the YWCA's youth programming fund. Dresses are on sale February 15th-24th.
