For the ninth year, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy has participated collaboratively with the Salvation Army’s “Cherished Memories” campaign. Through this campaign the Parents’ Guild collected prom dresses from generous donors and the Salvation Army will distribute them to local high school students, providing the opportunity for many young women to go to their prom in the dress of their dreams.
On March 11, the Pasadena Salvation Army will open its doors to invited guests for their “Cherished Memories” event. Fashionable new and gently used donated prom dresses will be displayed for their selection. We are happy to announce that 121 of those dresses will be coming from FSHA’s dress collection this year. Over the past several years Flintridge Sacred Heart has consistently donated over 100 dresses. Every year there is a competition among the classes to see who will donate the most dresses. This year the freshman class won, receiving acknowledgement for their charitable giving and a day of free dress. Freshman class President Eloise Whitford, presented the 121 dresses to the Salvation Army on behalf of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.
The class breakdown is as follows:
Freshman Class | 57
Junior Class | 34
Senior Class | 16
Sophomore Class | 14
A special thanks to Michele Marquis, Aimee Gutierrez, Christine Pappas, Kelly Spiotto, Annette Hanks, Nancy Reardon and Yvette Cruz for their time and commitment to this great cause. Thank you to everyone who contributed. Don’t forget to save any prom appropriate dresses you come across this year for the 2018 campaign.
