More than 140 graduating elementary students in North Vancouver, including Ava Heyes and Kaelyn Clarke, will be celebrating in style thanks to party dress donations from the community. On April 24 the students attended boutique day at the North Vancouver school board offices where they picked out a special outfit. The event is organized by 44 Dresses, a local charity which collects dresses for girls whose families live on a tight budget. Helping out that day were 44 Dresses founders Elena Grant and Lisa Upton, along with North Vancouver school district Supt. Mark Pearmain. Photo Mike Wakefield, North Shore News
