Frequently Asked Questions
Why a dress sale?
Macy’s has generously donated their unsold formal dresses to CASA of the Pikes Peak region, as the prom/wedding season was greatly impacted by COVID-19. This is a win-win as Macy's makes room for new inventory and CASA raises much needed funds for their programs.
How much did the dresses cost on the rack?
The dresses varied in price based on style and fabric, but almost all retailed for over $100 and many were closer, if not over, $200, so $25 a dress is a huge savings!
How do I get my dress?
Dresses can be picked up Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm at the CASA office, 418 S Weber St., the weekday after your dress is ordered. Dresses will not be shipped.
Can I try the dress on? What about returns?
For safety, all sales are final and dresses cannot be tried on. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Where would I wear a formal dress since many events are cancelled?
This is a great time to buy a brand new, beautiful dress for upcoming events! Eventually we will be able to attend events again and these dresses could be worn for:
Sadie Hawkins Dance
Ballroom Dance Costume
... just to name a few!
Tell me about CASA of the Pikes Peak Region
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Pikes Peak Region is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization serving El Paso County and Teller County that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of our most vulnerable citizens – victims of child abuse, neglect, and severe domestic conflict. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and in the community. The desired result is that children are placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.
We offer a variety of programs and services designed to meet the special needs of vulnerable children. Among them are the: Dependency and Neglect Program; Domestic Relations Program; Supervised Exchange and Parenting Time Program (SEPT).
CASA of the Pikes Peak Region serves approximately 1,700 children per year in all our programs, but hundreds are still waiting for volunteer advocacy.
Why is there a $2.50 charge per dress?
The $2.50 fee per dress covers sales tax as well as the credit card fee to process your online payment.
