Give your prom dress another turn on the dance floor



Are you a high school senior? Are you a washed up local cover band? Did you star in the new remake of 21 Jump Street?

If you answered no, it's safe to assume you won't be going to prom this year. But that doesn't mean your dress has to stay home, too.

Fresh Threads, one of our favorite Tampa consignment shops, is holding a prom dress drive for local high school girls in need. So far, they've already given several away to some super stylish, and grateful, chicks. They're also collecting shoes and accessories.

Drop the dresses off before April 7 at the store, 4230 S. MacDill Avenue, Suite F, anytime Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., or Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

For another option, donate or shop for dresses with the Belle of the Ball Project at Seminole Mall, 11201 Park Blvd. N. in Seminole every Saturday through May 12.

Thousands of quality dresses, shoes and purses will be available. Belle of the Ball Project has given more than 2,500 dresses to low-income high school girls in the past 9 years. For other donation sites and more information about Belle of the Ball Project, call (727) 386-4502 or visit

Who knows... maybe the good karma could lead to a Channing run-in. Maybe? Please?
