Local Girl Sells Gucci Dress From Bruno Mars To Help A Friend With Cancer; Get’s To Keep It
One of the most important nights in every High School student’s life is Prom. About a week ago, Port Huron Northern student Emily Torres showed up in her $4,000 Gucci dress, given to her by Bruno Mars. Torres asked Mars to Prom via YouTube and the video went viral, she even made it on the Ellen Degeneres show.
Mars was unable to attend, but hooked Emily up with that amazing dress. Not even a week later Torres was ready to part with the Gucci dress to help Collin Vani, an athlete from rival school Port Huron High, who was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Torres put the dress on Ebay and all the proceeds were going to help Collin and his family. What happened next is truly amazing! Read the note Emily received from the winning bidder, who paid $1,525.01 for the Gucci dress.
“WITH TEARS IN MY EYES I POST THIS MESSAGE I RECEIVED FROM EBAY ABOUT THE DRESS:
“Emily, I just want to say you are such an amazing and thoughtful girl to give away something that means so much to you to help Collin and his family. With that being said we purchased this dress so you could keep it for yourself because you deserve it. So please enjoy it and thank you for being so sweet and helping others. May God Bless YOU”
I was ready to never see this dress again for Collin and the fact someone bought it for me to keep is beyond a blessing from Jesus that I can’t even express ♥”
