“Prom Time in Downtown Elgin” kicked off Sept. 20 with a Progressive Prom Fashion Walk — part flash mob, part fashion show and all great fun! Fashion models from the Elgin Junior Service Board gathered in DuPage Court for a high energy, impromptu outdoor fashion show. Models were “Gala-vanting” around downtown streets and inside various businesses showcasing the fashions available at the YWCA’s Cindy’s Super Sale event on Saturday, Sept. 29. For details about Cindy’s Super Sale, visit www.YWCAElgin.org.
At 6:30 p.m., it’s the pre-prom party before downtown Elgin’s biggest formal party of the year as the Progressive Prom Fashion Walk then converges upon Villa Verone, 13 Douglas Ave. in downtown Elgin, for the DNA’s Elgin Non-Profit of the Week Prom-tastic Party. Guests will be decked out in the finest formal attire and enjoy fab fashions, free appetizers, fantastic karaoke, fancy-free dancing and fun with friends. The DNA will also officially be celebrating its new managing director, Jason Pawlowski.
Volunteers will be registering guests for the 2012 DNA Prom Time Awards Gala on Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Grand Victoria Casino, as well as selling 50/50 Awards Gala raffle tickets. Ladies in attendance can also find out more about purchasing THE dress for the DNA Prom Time Awards Gala at the YWCA Elgin’s Cindy’s Super Sale.
