Students at Rosary High School in Aurora held their 4th annual dress sale and fashion show Sunday afternoon to raise money for scholarships given to incoming freshmen.

The sale, sponsored by Rosary's National Honor Society, featured students modeling gently used dresses in a runway-style fashion show. Student models were escorted by male students from Marmion Academy in Aurora.

"The dress sale is our main fundraiser for the year, and we look forward to it," said National Honor Society Moderator Julie Jeppesen.

The sale featured more than 200 dresses that were affordably priced by their sellers. A $5 fee was charged for each dress sold, with those funds, as well as entry fees, going to the scholarship fund.

The school hoped to raise $4,000 from the sale.
