It’s Super Bowl weekend, but who cares? It’s just not the priority it was when there was a chance of Dak, Zeke, Jason, Dez and the Cowboys heading to Houston. Why, word has it that since the ‘Boys were eliminated, ticket sales drooped like a beehive hairdo in the rain.
Adding to the weekend dreary wearies, the lovely temperatures of the past days have been replaced by chilly, humid conditions.
But don’t get all down and out. Instead, head to that closet and edit. And while you’re picking dresses, accessories and goodies that don’t fit in your future, don’t forget those party pretties. Come on. Bite the bullet and admit it — you may have had a love affair with that pink organza or that bare-shoulder white silk, but you’ve moved on.
Now, what to do with your gowns, purses and heels? Have we got an answer for you and you’re gonna feel like a Super Bowl champ!
For the third year Comerica is holding its Prom Dress Drive during the month of February. No, the dresses are not going to be given to Comerica staffers, but you knew that. Instead, the formal attire will be offered to youngsters from Dallas CASA and Boys And Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas just in time for spring proms.
According to Dallas CASA’s Rosanne Lewis, “It is a wonderful thing to give girls in foster care a chance to experience the fun of prom in a fancy dress, feeling beautiful. Once all the dresses and accessories are here and organized, we will have two prom dress boutique-shopping days for the girls we work with. Shoes, bags, lots of bling, plus help with makeup and hair make it a great day for the girls.”
All you have to do is gather up your collection and take it to one of the following Comerica Banking Centers:
- NorthPark — 8850 Boedeker Street (Dallas)
- Forest-Inwood — 5200 Forest Lane (Dallas)
- Cole-Fitzhugh — 3202 North Fitzhugh (Dallas)
- Preston Center — 8225 Preston Road (Dallas)
- Chapel Hill-Tollway — 2560 Dallas Parkway (Plano)
After you drop the items off, head to your favorite store and treat yourself to some new clothes. After all, there is a now some empty space in your closet.
