MARYSVILLE — For the fourth year in a row, young people from throughout Snohomish County will be able to take part in the local community's free Prom Dress Exchange & Fashion Show — which will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 22, at 1050 State Ave. in Marysville this year — so that girls from Marysville, Arlington and beyond will be able to dress fashionably for all the formal social events coming up this spring and summer.

"This event has been a huge success, especially with its venue change last year, when more than a hundred young ladies participated in finding their prom and party dresses," said Renae James, one of the event's many coordinators, as she reiterated that the Prom Dress Exchange & Fashion Show are free and open to all of Snohomish County and its surrounding areas. "We want every girl to have that special memory of having attended her prom feeling like a princess in a beautiful dress. We currently have more than 330 dresses, with more still coming in, and they're all free."

James explained that the girls who attend will not be asked to prove their levels of need, or that they're from any particular school or city. While there's no charge to attend the fashion show from 11 a.m. to noon, or to obtain a dress at the exchange from noon to 2 p.m., a suggested donation of $10 each from girls who do find dresses would be greatly appreciated.
