For the third year, NorthBay Healthcare and Soroptimist International of Vacaville are teaming up with a number of local businesses to put together a special one-day event called “Operation PROMises,” for teen girls who cannot otherwise afford to attend their proms. Donations of gently used formal gowns, shoes, jewelry and wraps are welcome. Donations are tax deductible and can be dropped off at Secondhand Rose Thriftique, 322 Parker St., in Downtown Vacaville by March 10. Organizers are also seeking seamstresses to volunteer on the day of the event, March 12.
Girls must receive an invitation to attend. Organizers are working with local high schools to get the invitations delivered. Want to nominate a deserving young woman for an invitation? Call Jane Hilliard, NorthBay Healthcare’s director of Volunteer Services, at (707) 646-3137 for more information.
