FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALTIMORE – Synchronicity Boutique, the Baltimore-Washington area’s “hottest special occasion clothing and accessory shop for adults and teens in Baltimore,” has donated more than $10,700 in cash to support 240 schools’ Post Prom Parties. These events, which immediately follow prom, offer students a reason to stay in a safe, supervised location.
“Post prom parties are a wonderful way to keep students safe after the festivities of prom are complete. I discovered that many area schools and their families were unable to finance these parties,” said Synchronicity Boutique Owner Karen Mazer. “This year, Synchronicity Boutique helped outfit over 1,600 young men and women, attending proms at 240 different schools. In addition to tracking every sale to make sure we only sell one of each dress style per school, we use this information to donate $5 for every tuxedo rental and dress sale to the school whose prom the customer is attending. I also funded and outfitted students in a number of school fashion shows, and in a huge fashion event featuring Celebrity Designer Tony Bowls to raise even more funds. My dream is to increase Synchronicity’s sales, and expand our fashion events so every school that hosts a Prom can afford to host a Post Prom Party as well.” Synchronicity Boutique also donates funds throughout the year to schools’ SADD chapters with sales from Homecomings, Ring Dances, 8th Grade Dances, Parent-Child Dances and more.
This dream holds special meaning for Ms. Mazer. “My best friend from college was a juvenile diabetic. Her life was saved when she received a new kidney and pancreas. Although never conclusively informed, we believe that the organ donor was a student who died in a post prom accident. While we are all very grateful that my friend is alive, we also think daily about the fact that another family incurred a horrendous tragedy that facilitated it. I personally work hard to inform people about the importance of being an Organ Donor, but I also about how critical the need is to make sure that every student has a safe, fun place to go after their Prom so they don’t want to go elsewhere.”
