Got a Prom Dress?? Donate it to a great cause!

As regular donors (of our jewelry, of course!) to the Santana House Youth Action Center Prom Connection, we'd like to invite you to donate any evening gowns you might have that are collecting dust in your closet to this wonderful cause:

Join the 3rd Annual Santana House Youth Action Center Prom Connection and Make a Young Girl’s Dreams Come True!

The Santana House Youth Action Center in East Los Angeles will be hosting its “Third Annual Prom Connection” on Saturday, March 27th! Hundreds of teenage girls from nearby high schools and the surrounding neighborhoods will be invited to the Center to find a dress and all the accessories that go with it for their special night. We are accepting donations of new or very lightly used dresses and shoes. We are also interested in any jewelry, cosmetics, or hair product companies that might be interested in sponsoring or donating to the event.

To find out more about the event or to arrange a donation, contact Carol Zou at czou@vip-cmhc.org, visit http://www.santanahouse.org, or call 323.221.4231, x 170.

Thank you for your generosity and interest.

About the Santana House:

The Santana House Youth Action Center was created by teens for teens as part of the Violence Intervention Program, a nonprofit agency in East Los Angeles. The mission of the Center is to involve young men and women in a leadership role in building positive futures and preventing violence in their own lives, homes and neighborhoods. The Center offers free after school educational and cultural enrichment programs, tutoring, college preparation assistance, and opportunities to work on community outreach and prevention efforts. The Center is open five days a week and offers a safe space for teens to work together and develop friendships with other young people who are involved in positive endeavors. Donations to the Violence Intervention Program, www.violenceinterventionprogram.org, are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

So, dig through that closet and "go green" by sending your cleaned, but looking new and beautiful dress to the Santana House for their annual Prom Connection!!

Until next time,

Peace, Love and Helping Others, Baby!!

Cheers,
