When it comes to fashion, it is hard to narrow down our best supporters of 2011 because we have too many amazing fashion companies who support us. Here are our top 3:
J. McLaughlin, 75 Pondfield Road, Bronxville, NY 10708 (914) 779-4613
We started having “Sip & Shops” at J. McLaughlin Bronxville in May. This amazing fashion boutique donates 15% of their sales to charitable causes like ours, from these Sip & Shop events. Guests can come sip on some fun beverages, enjoy tasty treats, and shop for a good cause. They even collected dresses for us! Please visit www.JMcLaughlin.com for a store near you.
Stella & Dot
We first saw some of the “Real Housewives” casts in Stella & Dot jewelry and knew it was the perfect fit for us. Fabulous quality costume jewelry isn’t easy to find – look no further! We love all the elegant pieces they have, from glitzy studs to the perfect pair of chandelier earrings, Stella & Dot offers the best Prom and formal jewelry. Of course their casual every day pieces are just as stunning too! Shop with independent stylist Nanda Chavez this holiday season and a portion of the sales will be donated to Operation PROM. Go to: www.StellaDot.com/Nanda Please use OperationPROM at checkout.
Always a bridesmaid? Well then donate your dresses! That was the idea between our partnership with 57 Grand, a bridal salon in New York City. Owners Saukok Tiampo & Carmen Ho contacted us a few years back with the idea of encouraging their clients to donate their bridesmaid dresses. Since bridesmaid dresses make perfect Prom dresses, it was easy to pair up!
57 Grand offers a variety of gorgeous styles, colors and fabrics in their reasonably priced bridal collections. After you purchase a dress from them, you can go online to download your dress donation form and ship that dress right to us – it’s that simple! The company also participates in a huge dress drive each year, collecting the most dresses than any other retailer in New York City. You can even shop with them online!
