NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT                                               
   Memory's Magical Dresses
 

Winter is still upon us, but spring will make its appearance soon enough. With spring comes one of the biggest events on a young person's social calendar: the prom. For many students, however, the expense of a dress or tuxedo - not to mention shoes and jewelry - prohibits them from attending.

Those are the very students Memory Carouthers had in mind when she established Memory's Magical Dresses. Throughout the year, Memory collects donations for all elements of a well-dressed dance-goer. Then on two Saturdays In February, she sets up shop in the Mall at Barnes Crossing and gives away to those in need the very clothing items that will make them shine on their special night.

Above: Memory (center) is flanked by four young ladies who are ready to dance the night away.

This year's giveaway will take place February 22 and 29 from 10:00-3:00 in the Charlotte Russe location at the mall. Anyone who wishes to donate items can still do so - either at the Tupelo Parks and Recreation office (Ballard Park - 655 Rutherford Road) or at the giveaway location on the days of the event. All items will be accepted, but Memory is especially in need of plus-sized dresses (size 16 and up), shoes (heels and flats), and jewelry. Monetary donations are accepted and welcomed, too.

Memory helps a lady find the perfect dress for Tim Tebow's "A Night To Shine."

For more information about Memory's Magical Dresses, visit their facebook page. If your nonprofit would like to help in any way, click here.

Thank you to Memory's Magical Dresses for seeing a need and making sure every young lady and young man has an opportunity to attend the prom in style!
