GOODWILL TO HOLD FIFTH ANNUAL PROM DRESS SALE APRIL 10

Fort Worth, Texas (March 23, 2015) — Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth announced today that its fifth annual prom dress sale will be held April 10, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Goodwill superstore located at 2100 Altamesa Blvd. (at Crowley Road).

The prom promotion features formal wear and prom dresses specifically selected for high school girls. All dresses are in good condition, as most have only been worn once prior to their donation to Goodwill. Formal wear will be sold for pennies on the dollar, with dresses ranging from $8 to no more than $25.

“We are excited to provide a low cost alternative to finding formal wear for prom,” said Shay Johnson, Director of Administration and Marketing. “All students should have the opportunity to experience prom without the financial burden of an expensive dress.”

Goodwill Industries invites the community to join in packing the rack, and will be accepting donations of formal wear at all donation locations.
