Chicago St., Elgin, will be able to purchase any dress in the shop for a suggested donation of $15. The store also is filled with accessories, purses, shoes and cosmetics, while supplies last.

“Many of the dresses are new with tags, in sizes ranging from petites to plus-sizes,” said Alana Freedman of the YWCA. “At the event, the girls are greeted by ‘Fairy Godmothers,’ who serve as their personal shoppers as they select from hundreds of beautiful dresses.”
