After much consideration, the Silverbackks Board of Directors has decided that the SilverSparkle prom dress program — while very successful — does not meet our vision and mission to LEAD. HELP. BUILD. PROTECT.
New Mount Zion Baptist Church reached out to Silverbackks in an effort to continue this program, which now will be called the New Mount Zion Prom Boutique. This year’s event will be 9 am – noon, March 16 in the New Mount Zion Fellowship Hall, located at 2801 SE Indiana in Topeka. Approximately 900 dresses will be available try on and take home. A limited number of shoes and accessories will be available as well.
Volunteers will be needed beginning at 9 am on March 9, 2019 to help sort dresses and set-up for the event. For questions or inquiries about dress donations and additional volunteer opportunities, call Lisa Davis at 785-267-6312.
Lisa Davis and Silverbackks volunteer Jeanie Schuler will be appearing on WIBW’s Red Couch with Ralph Hipp at 4 pm, March 11 on channel 13 to talk about the transition from SilverSparkle to New Mount Zion Prom Boutique. Tune in to learn more.
The Silverbackks Board would like to thank Sabrina Womack for her love and vision to help Topeka youth through the SilverSparkle program. Sabrina — along with many Silverbackks supporters — have dedicated countless hours to the success of this program. THANK YOU for your dedication, time, and love for the Topeka community. Because of your support, Silverbackks will continue to be a viable, sustainable program.
