Prom Dress Swap is May 3 at Community Center

Cook County High School Prom is May 3. Got your dancing shoes ready but can’t afford a prom dress? Courtney Quaife is setting up a Prom Dress Swap that will take place Saturday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cook County Community Center in Grand Marais.

“Come and swap a dress for a dress, or if you don’t have a dress to swap, make a small donation and it’s yours,” said Quaife.

“No one will be turned down for the inability to pay for a dress,” she said.

Anyone with a former prom dress that they would like to donate is encouraged to do so.

“We will take donations or swap a dress for a gift card from a local businesses. All dresses are welcome. We are also taking costume jewelry and shoes. But please, only items that are in good shape,” said Quaife.

Anyone with a dress or dresses that they would like to donate, please contact Quaife at 218-370-1225.

“We would like to get a collection going before the event so there are some dresses to start off with,” Quaife said.
