West View Girl Scouts collecting dresses, gowns for boutique fundraiser


Whether it's a formal school dance or a gathering that's a bit more casual, for many girls, it's all about the black prom dresses uk.

But finding a way to turn heads without breaking the bank can be tricky.

So members of Senior Girl Scout Troop 50833 in West View came up with a solution.

“During one of our meetings back in the spring, the girls were talking about shopping for dresses for the spring formal that was coming up at North Hills High School,” said Ellen Gardner, who co-leads the troop with Linda McCann.

“The girls thought it was such a shame to spend money on a nice dress that they would only be wearing for a couple of hours. They mentioned that it would be great if there was a place they could take their dresses to be resold,” Gardner said.

That conversation, and the troop's efforts to identify a way to raise money for a planned trip to Savannah, Ga., to visit the birthplace of Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low, led to the creation of the Divas on a Dime Boutique.

Troop members will collect clean, gently used formal and semi-formal dresses and gowns during Friday night's football game on Oct. 28, between the North Hills Indians and the Hampton Talbots at Martorelli Stadium in Ross. Dresses will be collected from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“The girls have already collected about 90 dresses for the boutique and are hoping people will donate many more,” Gardner said, noting that a number of the dresses were donated during an event on Sept. 24 at West View United Methodist Church. “A lot of the parents who donated dresses said they wished there was something like this available when their daughters were in school.”

The Girl Scouts also will collect dresses at the Ross Community Center from 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 9.

The troop is planning to sell the dresses on Dec. 2 and 3 at Highlands Presbyterian Church on Perry Highway in Ross. Times for the sale are still being worked out and will be announced at a later date.

“This is a great way to help the Girl Scouts by donating a dress as well as a chance to pick up a nice blue prom dresses for a special occasion at a discount,” Gardner said.
