Rena's Dresses was founded in honor of two very special girls that were unable to attend Prom.
After the passing of her baby daughter, and the sudden death of her husband's 17 year old sister Nancy, Diley Greiser decided to use the tragedy to bring joy into the lives of local high school seniors throughout the High Desert. These tragedies are what inspired the name Rena's, the combination of Reanna, Re- and Nancy, Na --- Rena's. Sisters Diley Greiser and Donna Nazir started the non profit "Rena's Dresses" in Donna's living room with five dresses from her very own closet. Donna knew this was the perfect opportunity to help her sister Diley overcome the passing of her daughter. The two worked together closely
to make their dream become a reality.
The organization was created as a way to honor both Reanna and Nancy by allowing us to provide formal dresses to girls who do not have the financial means to afford the high costs associated with prom. A one of a kind prom boutique is created for students who are referred to us by their school, social worker or community organization. Each young lady is given the opportunity to enter the Boutique and shop with her very own assigned personal stylist for the perfect dress as well as accessories all for FREE!
We at Rena's are proud to know that through the memory of loved ones, other young ladies will have an opportunity to participate in an amazing, magical and special evening.
