The boys and girls of Villa Marie have been blessed with much kindness through JC Penney’s and Michelle Bernadt and her friends.  Thank you so much for touching the lives of our students in such a special way!  We are so grateful!

JC Penney’s provided each boy student their choice of a new shirt and tie for the dance.  It was quite an adventurous afternoon of shopping taking 12 boys shopping!

Michelle Bernadt brought about 80 fancy dresses to Villa Marie.  The girls tried on dresses- it was an exciting afternoon-and her team of seamstresses, Susan Taylor, Diana Bock and Okayama Volyanyk custom fit the dresses to each girl and planned alterations in some cases to make them more appropriate.

So be sure to compliment our students at the Dance.  They are super excited to be sporting special outfits.
