Miller-Motte Technical brings back Prom-O-Rama

 

Miller-Motte Technical CollegeClarksville, TN – Prom-O-Rama is coming to Clarksville again and a rainbow of color will be flowing through Miller-Motte Technical College’s (MMTC) campus soon. Hundreds of prom dresses will be collected at MMTC starting February 18th.

In an effort to keep costs down for Montgomery County high school girls attending their proms, MMTC is collecting prom dresses from ladies in the community that wish to sell dresses they will no longer wear, but would like to sell.

Some of the dresses registered to sell are brand new with the tags still on them. Some are gently worn. Each person wanting to sell their dress can bring their dress to Miller-Motte and set the price they want to receive for their dress. Dresses can be brought to campus starting Monday, February 18th at 9:00am. The last day to register them for sale will be Thursday, February 21st until 6:00pm.

Miller-Motte is not making any money from this event because the event is designed as a community service to help teenage girls and their families find a beautiful dress at a cost they can afford. All of the money received for the dresses goes to the seller. Prices will vary as each seller sets the prices, but they are much less then buying a dress at a retail store.

Maria Scott is the High School Presenter for Miller-Motte and the organizer of the event. “We are so excited to offer this opportunity to the Clarksville community. Every girl should feel like a princess at their prom regardless of how much their budget is. Last year we had close to 300 dresses (281 to be exact) and over 100 customers. We expect to double the amount of dresses we have this year,” said Scott.

Scott continued, “Gent’s Formal Wear will have racks of brand new dresses for sale at reduced prices. We have dresses that retail in the $200.00-$600.00 range being sold anywhere from $35.00 to $150.00! We will have dresses in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. This is also a great opportunity for ladies to sell their dress and get extra cash, while helping someone else find a beautiful dress for less. Miller-Motte Technical College will not profit from this event. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of dresses will go to the seller. We are simply hosting this event to benefit our community.”

The sale starts at 10:00am and ends at 2:00pm on Saturday, February 23rd! The event will not only have dresses, but there will be a florist, photographer, Accessorize Yo Lyfe, and Sun Oasis Tanning Spa, and other vendors with prom accessories. Enter to win door prizes which include but are not limited to prom accessories or a hair/make–up package from Serenity Spa at Miller-Motte.

If you are interested in selling your formal gown please contact Maria Scott for more information at 931.553.0071 or maria.scott@miller-motte.edu. The deadline to register your dress is Thursday, February 21st, 2013 by 6:00pm.
