One woman’s past prom dress is another girl’s fairy tale gown.

AU has partnered with Once Upon a Prom Dress to collect clean, gently used prom dresses, bridesmaid gowns, and accessories for Washington teens. AU Staff Council, Alpha Chi Omega, and Chi Omega collected 22 fab frocks on the quad, March 18, including dresses from Rachel Olivieri, Jilian Fama, and Taylor Starkman, all of Chi Omega sorority.

Drop off your dress from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 24 and 25, on the quad. The gowns will be distributed to local teens at an event at Eastern Market on April 17—just in time for prom night.—AF
