|2016 Gloria Yedlicka Scholarship|
Cape Fear Formal Wear, Inc., a locally owned formal wear rental and retail shop located in downtown Wilmington, NC, is pleased to announce the first annual Gloria Yedlicka Scholarship.
The $500 award will be presented to the high school in the greater Cape Fear area with the highest number of full tuxedo rentals based upon published junior and senior class size ratios. A check will be presented in-person at the conclusion of the Spring Prom 2016 season.
The initiative is in memory of the business’ founder, who 40 years ago saw the need for a full-service tuxedo rental and accessories outlet in Wilmington, North Carolina.
"Gloria dedicated herself to not only helping the men of the Cape Fear area look their best, but giving back to the community she called home,” says Jeff Hovis, owner of Cape Fear Formal Wear. "We think she would have embraced this new scholarship to help area schools who often struggle with keeping prom costs down."
From proms to weddings to galas, Cape Fear Formal Wear offers a large selection of formal wear apparel and accessories as well as tuxedo rentals from 1 to 1000.
