Have a fancy dress you no longer wear or fit into? Want to help send a girl to her prom in style?
Local 1 member Annie Miller is collecting used party dresses to be donated to the Orange Ulster County BOCES Special Education Program. She is teaming up with Broadway’s Green Captains to get the word out that the Broadway community can help make these girl’s dreams come true.
The dresses collected will be altered for the girls to wear to their senior prom for those that cannot afford to buy a dress. The IRS allows deductions up to $500 for clothing donations without a receipt. BOCES can give receipts for dresses donated that cost more than $500.
Please email Annie at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off your dresses at the BGA office, 1560 Broadway, Suite 1312.
Please help every girl feel like a Cinderella on her prom night!
The Broadway Green Alliance was founded in 2008 in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) is an ad hoc committee of The Broadway League and a fiscal program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Along with Julie’s Bicycle in the UK, the BGA is a founding member of the International Green Theatre Alliance. The BGA has reached tens of thousands of fans through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other media.
At the BGA, we recognize that it is impossible to be 100% “green” while continuing activity and – as there is no litmus test for green activity – we ask instead that our members commit to being greener and doing better each day. As climate change does not result from one large negative action, but rather from the cumulative effect of billions of small actions, progress comes from millions of us doing a bit better each day. To become a member of the Broadway Green Alliance we ask only that you commit to becoming greener, that you name a point person to be our liaison, and that you will tell us about your green-er journey.
The BGA is co-chaired by Susan Sampliner, Company Manager of the Broadway company of WICKED, and Charlie Deull, Executive Vice President at Clark Transfer<. Rebekah Sale is the BGA’s full-time Coordinator.
