27 Dresses for Promise House

Blair Johnson, an 8th grader at The Hockaday School decided to combine her 14th birthday celebration with helping the community. Last Saturday, January 26, Blair held a “27 Dresses” party and asked her friends to join her to see the movie “27 Dresses” and in lieu of gifts, she asked everyone to help her collect 27 gently used dresses to donate to Promise House, a Dallas shelter. Blair and friends surpassed the goal and collected 35 beautiful dresses and outfits that they hope will make other teens feel special when they wear them. And..everyone had a great time in the process! A big thanks to Emily, Rachel, Lexi, Marisa, Meghan, Nidia, Lily, Holly, Zoe, Alycia, Caroline, Julianna, Angelika and Dillon who donated dresses.
