“Many of the dresses are new or have only been worn one time. We already have over 200 dresses and are still accepting donations. We also have over 500 pieces of jewelry, in addition to purses and other items,” said BARL president Rusty Adcock.  

BARL is still collecting items for the sale. Donations of “dressy” clothing and jewelry may be dropped off at BARL’s Adoption Center Wednesday-Sunday, 12-3 p.m. The adoption center is located at 501 North Park Lane Drive. Other donation arrangements can be made by contacting BARL volunteers Deana Pendley at 601-720-1505 or Julie Montalvo at 601-757-1057.
