PLEA

Putting on the Glitz

Putting on the Glitz is a grassroots initiative involving PLEA employees, representatives from Ridge Meadows community service agencies, local business and other partners. We all work together to provide local high school graduates in need with formal attire so that they can attend their graduation festivities with pride. Without such assistance many of these students could not afford to participate in celebrating this important milestone. We are always accepting donations of gently used grad dresses and accessories. And we are always in need of volunteers on the day of the event. For more information please contact Michelle Cherak ([email protected])

Although many of the services we need to deliver this initiative (such as seamstressing, hairdressing, make-up and photography services) are provided free of charge by individuals and businesses in the area, we do also gratefully accept cash donations. The money we raise pays to store the dresses and tuxes in the run up to the event, to cover any dry cleaning costs and to pay for  refreshments for the evening. Our fundraising target is $5000.
