TJ Tryba, 15, and Cole Issleb, 16, both of Island Lake, burn the time as Tryba's sister/Issleb's girlfriend, Taylor (not pictured), tries on a dress in the back area at My Sister's Dress at Sage YMCA in Crystal Lake on Saturday, March 7, 2015. My Sister's Dress Is a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County. Gently used dresses were donated and sold for girls going to prom. Girls can get a dress for $25 or jewelry, purses and other accessories for $5, saving quite a bit on the total cost. The money raised – typically about $3,500 each year – is gifted to Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County, said Lake in the Hills resident Emily Smith, co-founder and chairwoman for the event.
