The Ruby Room, a non-profit that provides formal gowns to local high school girls who can’t afford to buy a prom dress, is asking businesses all around the city – including Phinney-Greenwood – for help. Their biggest event of the year, the 2010 Fall Auction and Fashion Show, is coming up on Sept. 11 at the Paramount Theater.
“We are hoping some of the Phinney-Greenwood businesses will join us in support of auction with a procurement item donation, event sponsorship and/or product samples for our VIP bags,” Erin Quick, of Ruby Room’s board of directors, said.
Auction items are needed by Aug. 27. Contact Erin at (206) 437-6782. Dresses, shoes and accessories are also donated throughout the year and made available to girls in need at no cost.
