Alison Leach stands in the basement of FSJSS

Prepping grads for prom

A Fort St. James woman will be expanding her service to help grads have A Night to Remember.

Alison Leach stands in the basement of FSJSS, where she keeps the incredible collection of dresses, suits and shoes for her non profit service A Night to Remember to help graduates and their dates have the best prom possible.

Leach has been buying and collecting graduation outfits for years and loans them out to graduating students (who get first pick) and their dates for prom night, so even those who may not necessarily be able to afford an expensive graduation dress or suit can step out in style.

Some were even donated by her father, who she said she always remembers weating a new suit.

Leach herself did not have a prom, and enjoys shopping for and collecting the pieces, which cover a broad range of styles and all sizes. Leach is working on expanding the service to Vanderhoof, Fraser Lake and Burns Lake.

To find out more contact Allison Leach at: aleach@mail.sd91.bc.ca or call 250-996-8860 or 996-7126.
