Racine Prom Fashion Show
Tina’s Dress Boutique, the RACINE FAMILY YMCA and
the Racine Downtown Rotary Club are pleased to announce the 2013 Prom Fashion Show, a free event at Sealed Air Y Branch, Friday, February 22 at 7:00pm. Interested attendees may register in advance at www.tinyurl/promfashionshow.
With a national reputation for its Prom and more than 1,700 students attending Post Prom every year, Racine is long overdue for an event like this. Attendees will watch student-models showcase current fashion prom dresses down a runway while enjoying music and a party atmosphere. Audio and lighting is provided by The Party Company, and Jason Bliss Photography will capture each
moment to the fullest.
The Sealed Air Y Branch has ample space and seating for all attending, including parents and other family members.
“The Prom Fashion Show is the perfect place to come and decide what type of dress or tuxedo you’d like for Prom,” said Tina Sagal, owner of Tina’s Dress Boutique the only upscale bridal gown and dress consignment store in the Racine, Kenosha and Milwaukee Metro area. “There will
be multiple styles and sizes available, and it will be a fun evening to come browse and enjoy a good time.”
The first 100 attendees to register will receive a free gift bag including coupons and giveaways from local businesses. During the show attendees can win door prizes from J&N Ultra Tan and Kenson Enterprises transportation service. After the show, meet with participating businesses to book appointments or get to know more about their services. Cash and carry is also available on all prom dresses that are featured in the show.
The student-models come from all of Racine’s many high schools. Each model will have their hair and makeup done by local business The Look Total Concept Salon, Aspire Salon, Main Credential’s and Christie Mike from Mary Kay. And each will carry a beautiful flower arrangement created
specifically for this event by Flowers By Walter.
“Don’t think we’re leaving the young men out of this event,” said Sagal. “There will be several tuxedo styles modeled to go along with at least 20 dresses featured in sizes from 2 to 18.” The boys will sport tuxedo’s provided by Nedrebos and will also walk the runway.
“Hosting a Prom fashion show will help families stay local and within a reasonable budget while offering their high school student the dress of their dreams,” said Sagal, who hopes this will be the first of many annual Racine Prom Fashion Shows. “With Racine hosting one of the largest proms nationally, girls should feel comfortable finding their dress in town.”
More About Sealed Air YMCA
The Sealed Air YMCA will officially open for business on September 1 after just a year of construction, but it has been planned for years.
First named the Diversey YMCA because of a generous donation of $6 million, the name of the new Y changed because Sealed Air - makers of Bubble Wrap - acquired Diversey in early 2012.
Thanks to the generosity of the entire community - businesses and individuals - the new, $14 million, 70,000 square foot facility will feature state-of-the-art amenities:
- Five-lane, 25-meter pool;
- A great water slide;
- Hardwood gym big enough for two games simultaneously or one headline game;
- Multi-generational, multi-purpose room;
- Childcare center;
- An aerobic center for spin, step and aerobic classes;
- Full-service wellness center
- Running track
Residents living in Racine County are excited about the new YMCA opening because while there are other fitness locations, none of them cater to the entire family.
From small toddlers playing in the child care center to school-age kids participating in basketball, teens who get the most out of education through the after-school program to parents and grandparents who spin and swim their way to health, the Mount Pleasant YMCA will be a community center for the whole family.
A special ribbon-cutting and dedication celebration is planned for September 8. Tours are planned for September 1, 2, 8 and 9, 2012. Anyone who brings in the postcard mailer will have their joining fee waived.
Entertainment will be part of the day, too. The Kilties will play at 1 pm on September 8 and plan to use the new Y as their homebase for practicing.
The new Mount Pleasant YMCA is designed to be the community center for families.
