The prom and formal dress distribution, coordinated in part by former Miss Ludington Area Shelby Soberalski has been extended to another day. Over 250 dresses were originally donated for the cause to provide formal dresses to local girls. According to Ms. Soberalski, public response was great, people were surprised by the selection of dresses offered on Monday and people continue to inquire about both donating dresses and picking out a dress.
Ms. Soberalski spoke about the inspiration for the dress distribution. “I had just come back from Miss Michigan, and I had such a body confidence experience going to Miss Michigan and having a dress and feeling wonderful in it, and that's an experience that every young girl should have.” Ms. Soberalski will be distributing dresses again tonight, Wednesday April 19th from 5:30 until 8:30 at Emmanuel Lutheran.
