Grad Donation Info

Drop-off Grad Dresses to be taken to Slave Lake at a later date
Once residents are back in Slave Lake and are ready, the plan is to head north with a trailer for the guys and gals who are graduating, and set up space so they can go "shopping" - no cost for anything they want of course! If you are looking to help out the grads of Slave Lake with donations, please drop off dresses that are in Supurb condition (or tuxes, shoes & jewellery) to the following locations:

Extra Foods in Westlock
Zarowny Motors (Ford) in St. Paul
Riderz in Edson
For more information, contact the fantastic Chelsie Fodchuk who is coordinating all of these drop off locations, storage, and transportation to Slave Lake (yes she rocks!) She can be reached at cfodchuk@live.ca or through facebook.

Alteration Services
I have many years as seamstress wedding and grad dresses. I am offering my services to assist the ladies with fitting of their gowns if required.
 I can bring my equipment to various locations if required, perhaps setting up different dates at different locations as I realize they are spread out at the moment.
If I can be of any assistance please let me know!

This dress is a size 16, but a small one, so the owner said it is more like a 14. It is in Fort Saskatchewan and can come with Jewellery. Contact Tracy at tracybassett95@gmail.com

I have a very simple homemade wedding dress that could be used by someone.  It's white satin with an overlay of white floral lace.  It's a very simple dress with spaghetti straps.  It would fit a size 4 I think (and hemmed to someone who is 5'-2" tall but could be hemmed shorter for a more springtime affair).  See attached photo.  Add a colourful satin sash around the waist with a bow and I think it could look quite nice for a non-wedding.

Hi Angie, attached are the pictures of my daughter’s grad gown that she would like to donate.  It’s a size 10. My daughter is 5’8”  if that helps to see length.  The pictures don’t do justice to the dress.  It’s a translucent color so depending on the light it goes from brown, to copper to purple.  Mostly copper and purple.  The front stitching is gold.

I have a dress I can donate.  It falls just below the knees (I am 5'4).

I have a Grad dress to offer.  It's approx. 7 years old, purple with "exploding" jewels/beading/embroidery coming off of the left hip.  It's strapless and comes with the matching shall.  Size 16 technically but can fit snug.  I attached a picture of me in it.
Let me know if my dress can be used!  I live in Fort Assiniboine - South East of Swan Hills so I am not far!

I have a navy blue XL grad dress. It is navy blue/purple mix.

Hi, I have a grad dress that I would be willing to donate to a Slave Lake grad student. It is probably between a size 7 & 10 , it has a corset back which makes it very adjustable. It is in perfect condition. The name of the dress is Fuscia Kiss (it is a very bright fuscia pink, 2 of the pictures make it look more faded than it is) it has beading on the bodice & the skirt. I have included photos, & would be willing to answer any questions that anyone might have. My e-mail address is vanfam6@hotmail.com & my name is Liana.
I would like to donate this dress for grad if anyone is interested in it! It has only been worn twice and is a size 2!
thanks   Dominic   dcollindoyle@live.com
I am looking to donate my hot pink Tiffany Grad Dress. This Dress was only worn once and has been in the bag ever since. it it a size 6-9 and varies a lot because of the corset back. I hope I can make a graduate very happy with this dress.
I would also like to be able to see the online store once my dress is up, if anyone is interested they can text me 1403-654-5028. I am from Lethbridge but could get it there through fed ex or something. They could also email me as my emails go straight to my cell.. carlee.marie@hotmail.com.

Dress is a size 10
It was a perfect fit for me at 5'5" (plus short heels), aprox. 140
pounds, B-C cup size. Waist was tight (built-in corset wiring) & dress is a zip-up. Beaded details on the top half of the dress, in the bow of the waist ribbon & on the edges of the shawl. Shawl is huge, can cover your back and arms to keep you warm, or be folded and is a nice accessory (it came with the dress & is the same fabric). The fabric almost seems to change colour depending on how the light hits it, to a greenish-blue.
Only worn for one night, so like brand new. Comes with a matching ribbon (to the ribbon on the dress) available for use in hair or to match accessories.

My contact email is darla.fremmerlid@gmail.com
The dress is in Edmonton, near Kingsway area

This dress is an altered size 2.
Contact Tammy nimish@live.ca

This is a size one but would is longer so it would fit someone taller. Contact Tammy nimish@live.ca

This is an altered size 2.  It has been shortened so it would only be appropriate for someone 5'3 or smaller. Contact Tammy nimish@live.ca
Ladies size 2petite, but has been taken in around chest/waist, so would fit small 2 or 1 ? Would fit 5"-5"3 in height or so, just an estimate. Burgandy/wine color, halter style. Was worn for a Bridesmaid's dress, but cn be fancied up with accessories :) If anyone would like it, I would be honored to donate it.

I have a size 12, chocolate brown grad dress with a pick up skirt on the bottom. I can also include gold shoes- size 8, only worn the night of my grad and I believe I still have the jewelry seen in the pictures to go with it, but I’d have to dig around for that. I've included pictures of the dress, let me know if you'd like pictures of the shoes as well, and I will snap a few and send you them.

Hi Angie! My name is Taylor and I have a grad dress, that I said I would never give up. But when a disaster like this hits somewhere close to home, I would do anything to help someone out.
