At their best, school formals can be like something out of a fairy tale. Until the bills arrive, that is.
Saint Joseph High senior Katie McKeon hopes to remove cost as an obstacle for high school girls attending the senior prom. McKeon, 18, said the cost of a dress alone can easily top $400, and that is before the cost of shoes, accessories, hair and makeup are factored in. Toward that end, she unveiled a prom dress exchange Friday at the school. The dress exchange is part of St. Joseph’s Giving Week.
