Each year, Anton’s Cleaners, a family owned Massachusetts business, sponsors the Belle of the Ball drive to collect, clean, and then distribute prom gowns to high school junior and senior girls.  These girls are nominated by community members, teachers, and others and would not normally be able to afford to attend prom.  The service concludes with a “boutique day” where the girls are assisted in picking out a dress, shoes, and all necessary prom items. 

 

 

 Wellesley Dental Group is happy to be a drop off site for this gown drive.  If you have any gently worn or new prom gowns (must be within 3-4 years old so they are still trendy) and you’d like to help, please bring your gown/s to our office by April 10th and we will make sure to get them to a local Anton’s for cleaning and distribution. 

For more information on this event (many volunteer positions for Belle of the Ball might still be available) please visit www.antons.com/belle/index.html

  1. This is a very intriguing post, I was looking for this info. Just so you know I located your site when I was browsing for blogs like mine, so please check out my site sometime and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.

  2. This is a good summary, I located your blog page checking yahoo for a similar topic and arrived to this. I couldnt find to much additional information on this post, so it was good to discover this one. I likely will be back again to check out some other articles that you have another time.

  3. Last year I also donated a dress or two (they had been in my closet and certainly weren’t getting used) and it felt really good to be able to help. I remember how special going to prom was for me and I hope that I can help again this year.
