CHAMPAIGN -- Prom is a staple high school experience, but anyone who's ever gone knows how expensive it can be. A sale is helping some area teens find that perfect dress while others get rid of their old ones.

Girls give their prom dresses to the event after setting a price. If it sells, the girl gets 80% of the sale. Portions of the proceeds to go Habitat for Humanity.
