Thursday, February 21, 2013 • 8:57pm
WESTFIELD, NJ—On Sunday, March 3, The Paul Jackson Fund will host a party dress sale for teens featuring gently worn dresses with prices ranging from $15 to $30. The sale will take place at St. Helen’s Church, 1600 Rahway Avenue in Westfield, from 1:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
The event is designed to enable young ladies, regardless of economic status, to attend events such as proms, sweet 16s and bat mitzvahs in a beautiful dress. All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit The Paul Jackson Fund, which provides financial support to families in crisis because of a catastrophic illness or disability. Proceeds from this sale will assist those most in need.
“We hope to make this an annual event,” said Mary Doherty, director of development.
School clubs, including Westfield High School’s Paul Jackson Club, have been collecting dresses to be sold that day.
Have a dress you would like to donate? To qualify, dresses should be no more than five years old and suited for girls ages 12 to18. Call Doherty at 908-233-6100 to arrange a drop-off.
