That Special Touch

That Special Touch That Special Touch is where you can rent a dress or gown for the special event without spending a lot of money.
(3)

That Special Touch is beginning to gather never worn or used dresses & gowns. We want to be the place to go when you are looking for the special outfit without spending a lot of money for a outfit that will just hang in your closet. We are purchasing garments and donated items would be appreciated since part of the proceeds will be going to charity and cover the cost to for a girl to wear a gorgeous outfit for the school dance, wedding, etc. but is unable to afford it. We are looking into a trade-in program. We are considering to apply a garment that you may want to sell towards a rental since the rental fees are based on that garment. Please check back for new additions to our collections. Each dress or gown will have the size & rental price listed. Any item will include an automatic cleaning fee & security deposit. We at TST hope to provide a fun and exciting experience while saving money to look FABULOUS!!!

In honor of International Firefighter Day that was May 4. A short clip of my husbands 25 + years as a firefighter...

He joined in his 20's alongside his two brothers, Denny and Rob and his mother, Lousie "Bubba" who was the first lady to drive the ambulance for Citizen's Hose Company. Imagine that crew leaving a house in a hurry.

In 1988, he became the longest member to be President for 14 consecutive years. August 1997 he was voted 3rd VP of the Western Pennsylvania Fireman's Association and in 2000 was President. Alongside those duties was Emergency Management Coordinator for Glassport, Pa.

September 2001, alongside members of his fire department they assisted in searching for items at Shanksville, PA and attending the funeral of 2 bothers from NY who were a firemand and policeman.

Going to NY this past September and visiting the Freedom Tower and 911 Museum was a humbing and difficult for him at times. These are 2 locations I will all students and people could visit. With no political reasons but just go with open minds and see what is there.

In March, after a long year last year we got to attend his companies annual banquet. Attending brought back alot of memories and thoughts of members no longer there, old traditions done by the members and seeing new ones starting then having the time to visit with members not seen for a long time and members of the Rosalyn Fire Department.

To all the fire, police, nurses, doctors, EMS and medical personnal thank you for everything you do for so many. Due to your hard work & dedication so many people are here today because of you.

Friday, November 8 my daughter, Claudia Komondor (Miss Mid-Atlantic United States 2019) will be dancing her heart out ballroom style in the Champions of Dance for the United Way. She is representing Jim Shorkey Auto Group.

If anyone would like to attend I have shared the link to order tickets and any sponosorship ads. They are expecting over 500 people to attend.

Let's say all those years of dance, show choir in high school and musical productions are paying off.

I forgot,, go to Unitedway4u.org to order tickets and mention TEAM Claudia & David.

Our Story

That Special Touch is just like the name says. Over the past several years, we have been collecting and receiving donated new and used gowns and dresses. Why, because there are times when a girl or women has an event such as homecoming, prom, a social event or even to receive an award but are unable to afford an outfit for that event.

We want to be the place to go when you are looking for the special outfit without spending a lot of money for a outfit that will just hang in your closet.

How do we do that? A rental fee is collected to cover any cost of cleaning the garment and for any damage or loss. Upon returning of the garment(s) that money is then donated to a charity chosen by the individual. Such charities examples are Beverly’s Birthdays, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, any Veteran Organization, Race for Grace, The Hearth Shelter, Relay for Life and others special to individuals.

Since starting, TST provides alteration services for brides, homecoming dresses, prom gowns, everyday wear, and special projects/costumes.

For over 7 years, we have enjoyed being involved and handling the fitting, alterations and costume coordination for Norwin Theater Company costume department musicals and alteration services to the Norwin Show Choir, Norwin Chamber Singers and RWS Productions.

We are excited to be branching out even more. For years my mother and I have made Quillo’s as gifts and donations for fundraisers. Our Q2Love quillos will be going to Beverly’s Birthdays for baby’s and teenagers. Plus we will be providing alteration and costuming services for the STARFLEET group, Imperial Klingon Forces and GbostBaseRL.

Even though we enjoy helping bring smiles through clothing we realize that it is important to give back and pay it forward. Whether through donating to fundraisers, giving of your time or even just promoting events. Every little bit helps.

TST gives back by holding fundraiser parties. The organization makes custom pieces through Magnabilities. Magnabilities is interchangeable magnetic and engraveable jewelry and accessories. You can create pieces using your own photos, quotes and even create using their software of images, fonts, backgrounds, borders and clip art for engraving. We at That Special Touch hope to provide a fun and exciting experience while allowing you to wear an outfit or costume to make your dreams come true!!

Sincerely, Rose Marie, Claudia and Barbara
