Prom and other special occasion dresses were sold at deep discounts during our spring dress sale April 14 and 15. Together We Cope thanks the many volunteers and staff who lent their time and efforts to ensure the success of the sale
The dresses, from two local bridal shops, were samples and included prom, bridal, bridesmaid, flower girl and evening dresses. A few bridal veils also were offered. For each dress purchased guests received an entry for a chance to win a $25 gift card to VIP Nails in Tinley Park, with a drawing each day of the sale.
This was a great opportunity for girls to get beautiful prom dresses for a fraction of the cost they might otherwise pay, as well as a chance for brides-to-be to see a wide array of bridal and bridesmaid gowns at reduced prices.
Proceeds of sales at Nu2u are used to support programs of Together We Cope, a homeless prevention agency based in Tinley Park that serves families in crisis in 27 south suburban communities. TWC offers assistance via its food pantry, clothing resale shop, funding for some needs like rent and utility bills, and referrals for other family services.
