Ribbon Cutting: My Daughter’s Dress Boutique
Members of the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce gathered on April 15 to celebrate the opening of My Daughter’s Dress Boutique at 1569 Sycamore Road, Yorkville.
A nonprofit organization, it is their mission to make sure every girl and woman feels beautiful on their special day by providing the formal dresses, shoes, and accessories without the huge price tag. They provide low-cost formal dresses: prom, homecoming, wedding, bridesmaids, wedding guests and more. Recently, they added a little girls and boys line.
During the event, a fun fund-raising challenge was posed by photographer Jerry Bannister and Chamber Ambassador Joel Recchia (Heartland Bank & Trust). A donation goal was set and if met, Joel agreed to “walk the runway” in one of the gowns. The challenge resulted in $100 being collected, and we thank Joel for being a good sport!
