Going to town on expensive gowns

The "Run for the Gowns" sale, as it was billed, lasted from noon to 4 p.m. and was held in the teen-senior center building. Volunteers from the Cranberry Township Community Chest, a nonprofit that supports local charitable groups, had sorted the dresses by size and had arranged them on racks. Though a few dresses had lost their price tags, most carried the original tags and ranged from $250 to $3,500. Every dress was sold for $50. "It's pretty exciting,'' said CTCC Secretary Gretchen Moron, who organized the sale, as she surveyed the crowd. -Karen Kane, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
