Giggey Girl Gowns will be opening for its third year on Sunday, March 17.
If you have never heard of Giggey Girl Gowns, let me introduce our non-profit organization. In February of 2011, I began searching for a prom dress. My family had been hit hard by the economy, and things were getting tough. The prices of prom dresses was outrageous, and there was no way that I was going to be able to afford a brand new dress. After doing some careful research, it looked as if this was a universal problem. The average amount of money spent on prom is around $870.00 a person. An average of $300.00 is spent on the dress alone. With that idea in my head, I started a project that would offer free formal wear to all of those who need it. Prom should be a day when every girl gets to feel beautiful, no matter what financial circumstances she faces. Also, women of all ages deserve to be able to get dressed up for any formal occasions! And the same goes for guys! In 2012, we started catering to men as well! We believe that everyone deserves to feel special on the night of their formal event. We now carry dresses, shoes, jewelry, suits and sports coats, ties, and more, all of which are given away for free, and all donated to us by the very generous people in our community.
This year, we are in need of many dresses! We gave away over 100 dresses last year, and now we need to replenish our stash! We accept donations of all kinds of dresses, shoes, jewelry, or any other things. We also are n very desperate need of men’s wear of all kinds, like tuxes, sport coats, ties, vests, shoes, pants, or even dress socks and cuff links!
But don’t get us wrong! We still have a selection of over 300 dresses to choice from in sizes 1 through 26! We always want to help everyone find their dream dress! Whether it is from a prom wedding, or other formal event. The same goes for our men’s wear! We will do everything we can to provide what is needed to the people who enter our dress organization!
We would love to see you all at the Community of Christ Church Starting this Sunday March 17th 2013, and continuing through June 2nd 2013. We are open from 1 to 3 every Sunday through these dates. We are located at the Community of Christ church 128 Pierce Rd. Brewer Maine, diagonally across the street from the Brewer Vet Clinic. Come donate, get a dress, or just check us out! Starting this Sunday!
