YWCA Helping Elgin County Grade Eight And High School Grads Get Ready To Celebrate

March 14, 2018 - Elgin County, Ontario - The YWCA St. Thomas-Elgin is pleased to announce that it will be hosting this year's annual Get Gorgeous for Grad event from March 26-29, 2018. This annual event is for Grade Eight and high school graduating students who find it financially difficult to find formal wear for local Graduation ceremonies.

"Everyone graduating should be proud of their accomplishment and this important milestone should be celebrated!" says Lindsay Rice, Director of Community Programming. "We hope this event helps give everyone the opportunity to feel confident and fully enjoy this important time in their lives."

Youth interested in participating in the Get Gorgeous for Grad are asked to call the YWCA 519-631-9800 to book a 30 minute one-to-one appointment with YWCA staff. These boutique style appointments are confidential and all gowns and formal wear are free of charge. Students are encouraged to bring a parent, close friend or family member to help them choose their outfit.

Anyone interested in donating gift cards, cash, gowns, or suits, is encouraged to do so by calling the YWCA: "Without the support of the community this event would not be possible," says Rice. "We're incredibly grateful for the generosity of our donors and are looking forward to celebrating with our local grads!"
