New storage site for donated prom dresses in Texas
ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) - An Austin-area woman who provides prom
clothing to girls who otherwise might not get fancy dresses has a
new place to keep the finery.
The Fairy Godmother Foundation in Round Rock has been struggling
to find space to store its more than 800 gowns since founder Keri
Byer recently moved. Byer previously used a guest house near her
home to store the dresses.
For $25, young ladies can rent the prom gowns, makeup, photos
and other donated items.
Byer, who held a prom fair last weekend, was still trying to
come up with a place to store the dresses when a landlord offered
her a large space for about $600 per month.
Byer says she will pay the cost through rental fees and
Byer's next prom fair is set for Saturday.
