Even though Rita Medeiros passed away at the young age of 16, her light lives on in Rita’s Closet. Rita had just purchased her prom dress from DeMario Bridal and Formal, when she died in a vehicle crash with her dress still in the back of the car at the time of the accident. Tamara Medeiros, Rita’s Mother, was so proud of the many lives Rita touched and hoped to continue that with the Scholarship fund and Rita’s Closet. Rita was a bright light in any room and was extremely caring person with a heart of gold. Rita missed her Cinderella Moment but you can help others have theirs by shopping at/or donating to Rita’s Closet. Rita’s Closet gives away scholarships and free dresses to those that can’t afford them and sells gently used gowns at a discounted price to fund the scholarships.
