There are approximately 200 wives (and female Marines) in this Company
who would love a “new” gown for Ball. We are asking the community for
donations of slightly used gowns in all sizes (age 20’s thru 40’s) and

volunteers will take items to Camp Pendleton and set up a day for the wives
to select a gown. We ask for donations by September 15.
Please contact Elaine Gennawey at 643-8288 to donate. We greatly
