This weekend, Santa Fe Prom Closet rolls out its annual free-prom-dress extravaganza with approximately 400 donated dresses--every high school girl's (or high school parent's, as the case may be) dream.
Last year, SFR profiled Santa Fe Prep teacher Rennae Ross, who pioneered the Santa Fe Prom Closet, an awesomely creative form of charity. Ross collects fancy-dress donations--"We get stuff that's not really prom," she admits--and gives them, along with accoutrements, to local high schoolers. For free.
This year, Ross is at it again, with 400-plus dresses (including more than 30 vintage frocks) in sizes ranging from 0 to 24.
The Santa Fe Prom Closet is open both Saturday and Sunday this weekend from 10am - 5pm at 2216 Brothers Road, Suite D.
Ross says it's a bigger space than last year's Prom Closet, complete with different rooms for each size category. They've also opened up the event to high school juniors--last year's was for seniors only--who are going to prom.
