DIXON – Barb Keith and Barb Hermes and their troupe of volunteers are preparing for the fifth annual Second Look prom and homecoming dress sale.

For the sale, donated dresses are cleaned, refurbished and altered, then sold for $10, $20 or $30. There also will be a rack of giveaway dresses.  

The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 23 at Immanuel Lutheran's Fellowship Hall, 1013 Franklin Grove Road.

Last year, more than 300 dresses were donated and more than $1,600 was raised. All proceeds were given to the activity departments of the schools the girls designated.  

If you have a dress to donate, or questions, call Keith, 815-440-3270 or Hermes, 815-288-4814.
