Prom dress styles have changed over the past five years, and with those changing styles, the Ultra Chic Prom Boutique has grown. From its inaugural year in 2008 with 300 dresses collected and $2,000 raised for the Lydia House, the Ultra Chic Prom Boutique has grown to nearly five times that. In 2011, the event collected 1,500 dresses, each dress was cleaned, pressed and mended by Max I. Walker’s dedicated and hard working employees, raising over $9,400 for the Lydia House.

Max I. Walker will celebrate the Ultra Chic Prom Boutique’s fifth year with the fundraising event from 9am – 3pm on Saturday, February 25, 2012, at the at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Convention Center on 72nd and Grover Streets.

Dresses can be dropped off at any of the 25 Max I. Walker locations – please visit Max I. to find a complete list of locations. Every dress donated will allow entry to win a grand prize which includes a year’s worth of free tanning from Ashley Lynn’s and a party catered by Qdoba (grand prize value of about $500).
