Happy Hera Day & Operation Prom Dress!

Monday March 1st is a double holiday for Alpha Chi Omega – both International Badge Day (celebrated by all 26 National Panhellenic Conference member groups – wear your lyre pin with pride today) and Hera Day, Alpha Chi Omega’s national day of service to others. Read a little more about Hera Day here: http://axoete.blogspot.com/2010/02/hera-day-march-1st-what-is-your-good.html

If you are looking for a service project today, please consider helping out Lauren Aukeman (Beta Eta, FSU) – she chairs Operation Prom Dress for Junior League Tallahassee this year!
Hi Friends and Colleagues!
Do you remember how great your prom was?  Remember, how fun it was to dress up and take lots of fun pictures? It may be one of my favorite memories from high school. 
Unfortunately, many young girls in our community won't get that chance because funds will prevent them for going. But the Junior League of Tallahassee is doing something about it, and I am privileged to chair this fantastic event. .
The Junior League of Tallahassee (JLT) is collecting formal dresses, shoes and accessories for its annual event, Operation Prom Dress. This one-day shopping event is for students of Gretchen Everhart School for Exceptional Students and all public high school students in the Big Bend region that may not be able to afford a prom dress.
Operation Prom Dress is scheduled for Sunday, March 21 from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Double Tree Hotel in downtown Tallahassee . Girls will have the opportunity to visit this make-shift boutique -- complete with dressing rooms -- and select a formal outfit, as well as try on shoes and accessories to complete their prom look.
I know each of you probably has a bridesmaid dress or prom dress you'll never wear again.  Please consider donating it and/or formal shoes or accessories to the JLT’s Operation Prom Dress. Contact me, and I'll coordinate the pick up of these items.  If you don't have dresses, please consider forwarding this email to a friend or colleague, or posting on a bulletin board at work with my contact information.
I really appreciate your support!
