Tuxes and Tiaras is a community event led by the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank and Issaquah School District High School PTAs. OSLC will be the host – Friday, May 4th from 3pm-7pm and Saturday, May 5th from noon-5pm. This fun and free event is open to students attending a dance at Issaquah, Liberty, Skyline or Gibson Ek High Schools. Students will shop for dresses, tuxedos, shoes and accessories with the help of a personal stylist. School dances are some of the most important memories for high school students – Tuxes and Tiaras helps make each school dance special for each student.
Donations of dresses, tuxes, shoes, jewelry, and clutches are needed! Donations are being accepted through April 27th. Please drop off items that are clean and in good condition to the donation area in Anderson Hall. Monetary donations are also accepted – you can donate via the food bank’s website (or write a check to OSLC and indicate “Tuxes and Tiaras” on the memo line.
Volunteers will be needed during the week of April 30th to build dressing rooms, help merchandise the attire, and even do some onsite tailoring. A concession stand will also be set up, so bakers will be needed for cookies!
