LAS VEGAS –Project 150 will host a wedding and formal dress sale to benefit disadvantaged high school students in Southern Nevada. All of the gently-used dresses will be sold for $50 each.
The dresses were recently donated to Project 150 by a local bridal shop that closed down. They come in various sizes and designs and can be worn for different formal occasions.
All proceeds from the dress sale go toward helping Project 150 serve more than 6,300 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students. The nonprofit provides food, clothing, toiletries, scholarships, workforce development services, and more to students in over 80 schools statewide.
The sale will be held Saturday, Jan. 12, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the TCMI Church, 5102 N. Rainbow Blvd, across from the Santa Fe Station Hotel & Casino. The event is open to the public.
“This is a great opportunity for community members to get some beautiful dresses at a discount while also giving back to a good cause,” said Patrick Spargur, co-founder of Project 150. “One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly toward helping our students overcome obstacles and succeed in life.”

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, founded in December 2011 by local businessmen Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur. The two heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas who needed support over the Christmas break. Since that time, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 6,300 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 80 schools in Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, college scholarships, workforce readiness, and other needs so they can continue school and be successful in life.
