Project PROMise has opened for its sixth season at the Kings Contrivance Village Center. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m Sunday.
Project PROMise is a prom, homecoming and special occasion dress consignment shop run by county high school students. The shop gives students the opportunity to sell or buy nearly new dresses and learn about business.
Thirty percent of the proceeds from consigned dresses and 100 percent of the proceeds from donated dresses benefit the homeless through Grassroots and the Domestic Violence Center.
To date, Project PROMise has donated almost $10,000 to both organizations.
The space was donated by Columbia Management, a subsidiary of the Rouse Co.
