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, 2011, at the at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Convention Center on 72nd and Grover Streets.  With a goal to make the fifth year bigger and better than ever before, Max I. Walker is currently seeking dress donations. Max I. Walker will clean and press the gowns, making them as good as new, and will sell them for just $25 at the event.

Dresses can be dropped off at any of the 25 Max I. Walker locations. Please visit to find a complete list of locations.
