The University of North Dakota Nonprofit Leadership Student Association (NLSA) is hosting its fifth annual “Formal Wear Sale,” which allows high school students in the Grand Forks area to buy affordable gently used prom attire. The event will take place Thursday, Feb.21, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday, Feb. 22 from noon to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Feb.23 from noon to 5 p.m., at The Ember located at 8 N. Third St., in downtown Grand Forks.
Dresses will be sold from $10 to $75, with higher-end dresses priced no more than $150. The NLSA will be collecting prom attire until the start of the event.
If anyone would like to donate, please call the contact information below and arrangements will be made to pick up donations or donations can be brought to the UND Memorial Union in the Student Involvement Office where a collection box is located. Donations are tax deductible and a tax deduction form is available upon request.
Proceeds will benefit the NLSA and the Sunshine Memorial Foundation, a prospective hospitality home that will fill a need for affordable lodging for family members of long-term patients accessing medical care in Grand Forks.
