Ava was recently diagnosed with leukemia.
Prom dresses have been donated from girls all over the state of Iowa. Organizers will be selling these "like new" dresses for a fraction of the original selling price.
Proceeds benefit the Ava Simonsen Fund,
There will be over 100 dresses to choose from- all different sizes and styles, priced anywhere from $25-$75.
"I Wear Orange for Ava" t-shirts will be sold for $15. Dresses will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
If you have a dress to donate to this special cause, drop off your old prom dresses on Feb. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Cherokee Community Center (lower level).
