PALM DESERT - The Desert Best Friend's Closet is giving away formal gowns to marine wives from 29 Palms in support of U.S. troops and to help them get ready for the marine ball in November.
The CEO of the non-profit organization, Connie Gold, says about 1,000 dresses were donated by the community, and she hopes to give away 100 dresses this weekend.
Fittings started Friday and will end on Sunday. It is by appointment, but there are openings for Sunday for any interested marine wife. Just call 760-776-9975 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
