Anna’s Closet Dress Sale

St. Agnes Academy will sponsor the fifth annual Anna’s Closet, a second-hand dress sale to benefit young women in our community through the Emmanuel Center, on Saturday March 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The sale, which is open to the public, will be held in the Veritas Research Center at St. Agnes Academy located at 4830 Walnut Grove Road. All dresses will be sold for a $10 donation. Shoppers will be able to buy great prom dresses, black-tie Gala attire, or casual eveningwear.

In 2004, Anna Menkel, then a junior at St. Agnes, loaned her formal dress to an underclassman who was struggling to find the perfect dress. When the young girl tried to return the designer dress Anna’s reply was, “No. You keep it. It looks good on you!” After Anna was killed in a car accident in 2005, a St. Agnes student committee established Anna’s Closet to honor her generous spirit and share Anna’s good will toward all.

All the money raised through Anna’s Closet as well as any unsold dresses will be donated to the Emmanuel Center to help young women enjoy their prom and graduation. The Emmanuel Center, which serves the Cleaborn Homes and Foote Housing community, provides spiritual direction for youth and adults, organized sports, tutoring, summer camps and after school care. The center feeds and clothes the needy, offers emergency assistance and provides nearly 30 faith based programs that keep kids off the streets and on a track that facilitates success.

For more information on Anna’s Closet or to donate a dress, please call 435-5809.
