DeeAnn Jones, executive director of Children’s Chance and mother of a childhood cancer survivor explains, “We are so excited to host this unique event and provide the community with the opportunity to purchase formal wear at such a great price while helping children in S.C. who are fighting cancer and their families. I really encourage the public to come out and take advantage of this event – girls getting ready for the prom or anyone who needs to update their formal wardrobe. We will have something appealing for everyone, and it’s for such a great cause”.

The Dream Dress Sale will have new formal gowns for sell ranging in size from 0- 22 for only $50 and also offer matching shoes for sell, jewelry to purchase, and have a stylist on- site from Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology to show the newest up- do’s for any formal occasion.
