Legislator Dixon, Urban Valet announce free prom dresses available

Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon and Urban Valet Dry Cleaners said that the fourth annual Prom Dress Drive Shopping Days will be held Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 at Performing Arts Dance Academy, located at 206 Lake St., Hamburg.

Girls are invited to come and shop for a free dress from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday. A large selection of colors, sizes and styles will be displayed for girls to look through. Dressing rooms will be provided to allow shoppers to try on three dresses at a time.

“The shopping days are a lot of fun and help families handle the cost associated with preparing for the prom or other formal event. This year we have a large collection, featuring some truly amazing gowns,” said Dixon. “All local girls are invited to come and shop through the selection during one of the two shopping days.”

Shoppers will be allowed one dress to ensure everyone in attendance is able to choose a gown. All the donated dresses are cleaned by Urban Valet Dry Cleaners prior to the free shopping event.

“We are once again overwhelmed by the generosity of our community members and businesses who donated to the drive. Thank you to all that gave. We are especially excited about the shopping days at Performing Arts this year. Our new setup there allows us to give a special prom experience, very similar to shopping at a store. The girls are going to have a blast,” said Jackie O’Malley, director of business development.

This year the Free Shopping Days will also feature a raffle to win a prize from Vivid Color and Hair Salon, located at 5738 South Park Ave., Hamburg. Each girl who registers will receive one chance to win.
