The Ruby Room
The Ruby Room is a nonprofit organization providing formal attire to teens in financial need across the State of Washington, enabling them to participate in high school milestone events. Teens come from across the state to receive a dress they can keep, at no charge. The Ruby Room is now located in Downtown Bellevue in a spacious and bright boutique space across the street from Bellevue Square Mall.
