At Rylie's ARK, we're all about community. It is through a community that ripples of kindness become waves and we can impact the world in a positive manner.
Throughout the year, we have both fundraising events and kindness events. Check back often for details on upcoming events. Also be sure to visit the links above which capture the impact of past events.
Rylie’s ARK is working diligently to create joy for young women who have the desire, but perhaps not the means, to attend prom. We are working with local high schools and businesses in Douglas County to collect gently used prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and other formal gowns, shoes and accessories to stock the first annual Be Happy Boutique.
We are in the process of putting donation boxes at both local high schools and businesses. Check back often for an updated list of donation locations, or send us an email to drop off dresses with one of our committee members.
The Be Happy Boutique will be held in Kirk Hall at the Douglas County Events Center on March 28, 2020. Our goal is provide joy in the form of a free prom dress for deserving students by removing roadblocks caused by the cost of prom. Students who would benefit from this event, will be asked to fill out a short application prior to shopping.
If you are interested in donating dresses please contact Robin Tivy. We will be updating this page with information on local drop off locations as they are secured. Additionally, if you are a local business interested in serving as a drop-off location or supporting this effort in another way, please contact Keri Winters.
