SBHS Viking Closet’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Prom Dress Event 'Huge' Success

Three-hundred-forty-three dresses donated, 140 plus dresses taken, 98 girls attended, 39 student volunteers, 21 staff and parent volunteers, and 16 businesses donated to the event.    

Thanks to:

This year the South Brunswick Education Association awarded the Viking Closet the Pride grant, which enabled our prom event to run flawlessly, as well as far into the future because of the major purchases we were able to obtain with the grant money.

For the second year in a row, The South Brunswick Education Foundation, awarded us another $1,000.00 grant.  Not only were we able to decorate the faculty dining room to look like a beautiful dress boutique for the event, we were also are able to help ease some of the financial burden for twenty SBHS boys for tuxedo rentals.

Returning supporters were KiKi D’s of Skillman whom donated $3500.00 worth of brand new prom dresses, Mary Kay (representative Dorie Knott), Dusal’s of Kendall Park, Tahira’s of North Brunswick, Rasoi Restaurant & Banquet Hall III of Monmouth Junction, Café Colore of Monmouth Junction, CosmoBleu of Princeton, Regency Cleaners &Tailors of Franklin, BlackRock Inc of Princeton, our own Chartwells from the high school,  the Home Depot of Monmouth Junction, Party Fair of Kendall Park, and Krispy Krust of North Brunswick. 

Businesses that joined us for the first time this year were The Nail Studio of Colonia, Castle Couture of Marlboro, and D’Bella Salon of Kendall Park.   We appreciate their continued support to South Brunswick High School and the community! 

As cliché as it is, this event would not be possible without the help and donations of all the wonderful teachers, paraprofessional staff, parents, students,  the amazing custodians and the township communities that donated all of the dresses and accessories!

Volunteerism abounds from all around, within the school community, South Brunswick Township and the surrounding communities.    Our volunteers are the heart and soul behind the dress event and the Viking Closet!!!
