Radio Stations Collecting for ‘Prom Dress Boutique’

Formal dresses can be dropped off at any Star Bright Cleaners.

Clear Channel radio stations including, 95.1, 100.3 The Peak and Big I 107.9, are joining with Star Bright Cleaners and Coronado shopping center to collect formal dresses for high school students who may not be able to afford them.

Dresses can be dropped off at any Star Bright Cleaners location in Albuquerque until March 6. The dresses can be unneeded prom or homecoming dresses, cocktail dresses or bride’s maid dresses, said Ryan Safford of Clear Channel.

On March 7, the ‘Prom Dress Boutique’ will open in the former Baby Gap location in Coronado Center, where the cleaned donations will be distributed to local high school students.

“We are finding that many families in our community struggle to help their children get the necessities for prom and that includes not being able to afford a new dress for the occasion,” Safford said, adding that the local CW and Fox affiliates have also been helping to get the word out about the need for donations.

If you have questions about the Prom Dress Boutique, you may call Safford at 217-4667 or e-mail him at
