 If the Dress Fits is a Duluth-based nonprofit group which allows girls and their families to donate current, previously worn or brand new gowns, and matches them with Northland girls who would not otherwise be able to afford a dress or attend their prom. The organization will hold its annual fundraiser 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 10 at the Buffalo House Junction in Esko. This fundraiser is a 21-plus event.

Advance ticket price is $10 or $15 at the door. Donate a current style prom dress and receive $5 off admission. Donated dresses will be collected at the door, or at the following advance ticket locations: Bella Rose Bridal, 1709 Mall Drive or Arrowhead Builders Association, 5255 Maple Grove Rd.

Those who wish to donate their gently used or new prom dresses can drop them off at the locations named above, contact Ashleigh at or send a message through the Facebook page.
