Growing Child Pediatrics offers gently used prom dresses

Posted March 18, 2012

I wrote about The Prom Shoppe a few weeks ago. There's another opportunity for girls, who may not otherwise have an opportunity to get a dress for their prom, to find one.

Growing Child Pediatrics is hosting a Picture Perfect Prom event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 24. More than 100 gently used prom and formal dresses in a variety of sizes will be given away at the practice's Wake Forest location, 11130 Capital Blvd., in Wake Forest.

Event organizers, nurse practitioner Mandy Johnson and Dr. Joanne Wagner, have been collecting donated dresses at Growing Child's seven locations in the Triangle. The public is welcome to attend the event. Light refreshments will be served as the girls select their dresses.

For detail, call Johnson at 919-414-1022 or visit Growing Child's website.

    we love Mrs. Mandy at GCP's, but we truly dislike the corporate conglomerate that Growing Child Peds has become.......i am in the market for new doctors for my kids b/c i hate the current impersonality in staff and doctors.........4 year nurse degree), but no weekend hours, and more 'herding' of the kids. It didn't used to be that way!

    They are also doing a new Fast Braiin camp for kids with ADHD. I think there is some type of fee involved, but they have an open house coming up for those interested.
