Gently Used Formal Dresses Available at ‘Fancy That!’ Jan. 28


“Fancy That!,” an annual sale of gently used formal dresses, is scheduled for Jan. 28 at Southeast Missouri State University.

Southeast Serves is sponsoring the event to benefit the Safe House for Women.

The fifth annual sale will be held from noon to 5 p.m. in the University Center third floor lobby.

Dresses have been collected and donated throughout the fall semester and will be sold at a reduced price.

This event has become especially popular among area high school students, and a limited number of vouchers have been distributed to allow those students who may not be able to afford a dress to receive a free dress.

Vouchers also have been given to the Safe House so women in the shelter may receive a free dress.

Short dresses will be $15 each, and long dresses will be $25 each. Last year, the dress sale raised $615 for the Safe House. It has raised $2,500 since the first sale in 2014.

The sale is open to all Southeast students, faculty and staff, and Cape Girardeau community members. Payment may be made by cash or check only.
