Dress Sale Supports American Cancer Society

Tau Lambda Sigma (TLS) is hosting its semiannual dress sale Oct. 3. The sale will take place from 4:30-7:30 p.m. in the Student Union Building Georgian Room A.

This is the fourth semester that TLS has conducted a dress drive. A former TLS fundraising chair proposed the idea as a way to raise money for the organization’s philanthropy supporting the American Cancer Society. The organization has set a standing goal of raising $2,000 each year for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

Formal dresses are priced between $1-25. Two years after its establishment, the dress sale continues to experience significant increases in campus awareness, according to Tricia Piccirillo, TLS fundraising chair.  

“About 20-30 [TLS members] work together in different ways through donations, advertising and working at the event itself to make the dress sale a success,” Piccirillo said.

Donations can still be made by contacting Piccirillo at tlp6622@truman.edu.
