Kyrsten’s Kloset is an annual prom dress drive created by the Kyrsten Elizabeth Studer Foundation in memory of Kyrsten who was tragically killed by a drunk driver on April 4, 2003. In 2013, a decade after the tragedy, Kyrsten’s sister Sarah and friend Janine Baholer decided to give free new and gently used gowns as a way to remember Kyrsten and to include her in prom, a milestone she never reached. The program has grown every year and last year they distributed over 250 prom dresses last year.
This year, Prom dresses will be given out at:
The Roosevelt Gymnasium
110 Orchard Ave.
Saturday March 11th & Sunday March 12th.
Noon – 4:00pm
Girls who come to the event will be able to shop, try on and take home prom dresses free of charge. The only requirement is to sign a prom promise to not drink and drive. There will be thousands of dresses to choose from and also a wonderful Chinese auction and bake sale.
Dresses as well as accessories and jewelery can be donated at any LaFrance Cleaners location. LaFrance will clean and do any minor repairs at no charge on all donated dresses. Chinese auction items and bake sale items can be dropped off on the days of the events from 9:00am – 11:00am.All proceeds go to the Kyrsten Elizabeth Studer Foundation, a non-profit 501c3, to help children and families in need.
