Owens Community College hosts discount prom sale

Admission to this event is free and open to the public.

We've all heard it before -- the hard-to-find prom dress and accessories.

Owens Community College is hosting its annual prom dress sale Saturday, April 12 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event will be on the Toledo-area campus in Perrysburg Township inside the Student Health and Activities Center.

Admission is free and open to the public.

High school students and their families can choose a selection from more than 400 prom dresses and accessories for minimal cost of $5 for dresses and less than $1 for accessories. Featured items will be gently used dresses, shoes, purses, gloves and jewelry. A Mary Kay representative will also be available to talk to participants.

All proceeds raised from the prom dress initiative will be used to benefit future community outreach activities for the Gay Straight Alliance Club.
