from the across metroplex to around the world. One of our company’s core values is
Progression. As our surrounding communities moves forward as a company we want

Not at all! We have
donated to organizations that provide evening fashions to young ladies that might not be
able to put money into long formal gowns for their proms or other special occasions. We
also offer a work program where young ladies can not only earn a paycheck, but they
can work to earn credits towards their prom dress or homecoming dress. This ties into
another one of our companies core values which is belief: Showing our team and our
community that when you believe in yourself not only can you accomplish your dreams,
but you can also help someone else achieve theirs. Supporting our motto
& Dreams Within Reach.

experience and product that goes well beyond what they thought.
