Best Buddies Dresses by Suzanna Paul

                      Best Buddies Dresses

        With Prom closely approaching, there is commonly a lot of stress to buy the right dress and also a lot of money spent. Mooresville’s Best Buddies solve this problem by selling prom dresses for just $20! This is such a small price for such quality dresses. There is quite a large variety of dresses to choose from and they come in all shapes and sizes. 

Students interested in purchasing a dress are allowed to bring in parents to browse around and shop as well as other students from other schools. All of the proceeds of the dresses go to the Special Education program at Mooresville High school being able to go to Prom. This includes the prices of tickets to the dresses and tuxes students will want to wear.

Melissa Bell is a teacher of Special Education at MHS. She is the advisor of Best Buddies. She said they sold 15 dresses at the MHS Carnival. When Bell was looking through the dresses, she found out that many students would actually enjoy those dresses and that they are timeless.

“We have all types of dresses and some dresses I thought were out of style, students would tell me they thought they were awesome,” Bell said.

Below is a video of what the dresses actually look like. Like stated before they come in many different shapes, styles and sizes. There is a dress for just about anyone!
