On April 4, 2018, area teens and parents converged on the Chester-Andover Family Center for Prom Shopping. Shoppers tried on multiple dresses from our selection of over two hundred long and short gowns. Once the perfect dress was found, the girls selected accessories to match. Guys also had a large selection of suits and tuxedos to choose from. Several CAFC volunteers were on hand to assist shoppers. Parents were especially appreciative of the quality and affordable price for all prom outfits; twenty dollars.
Area businesses supported this event by donating flowers, haircuts and manicures for a free raffle. Thank you to Seventh Heaven Salon and Spa, Woodbury Florist, Alaura’ s New Nails, Haircuts Just Around the Corner, Boccachio’ s, Images Hair and Tanning Salon, Chester Flowers, Salon 2000 and Halliday’s Florist.
