Prom dress and tux redux!

Redux is from a Latin word meaning "to bring back" especially in being restored to former importance or prominence; used postpositively...

A will and a way...

Free or low-cost prom apparel

There are numerous organizations throughout the United States and Canada that accept donated 'gently worn' prom dresses, tuxedos and accessories for the purpose of reusing them where they can do the most good.

Gowns and tuxedos are given free of charge (or for a nominal donation) to students whose limited financial situation could prevent them from attending their school's proms, semi-formals, or graduations.
