Spring is on the way, and so is prom season for all older girls. Prom is one of the most memorable moments of high school, unfortunately some young women have to miss out. If you or a fellow Girl Scout is in need of a prom dress, but can't afford one, there may be an answer to your problem.
United Way informed us that over 300 prom dresses were collected in Montgomery this year for students who may be experiencing tough times in the economy. Thanks to the support of the community, this years' event will be open to anyone who may need a prom dress, but simply cannot afford one.
Thursday, March 18, 2010, all dresses will be given away at the ASU Acadome (back entrance) from 2--6p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Dresses will be limited to one per female. Girls will be able to pick and try on dresses during this time. The dresses were all donated from the River Region community and cleaned by Jim Massey cleaners.
In Mobile, Pretty in Pink Boutique will be offering free prom dresses to girls in need also. The Pretty in Pink Boutique, located in Bel Air Mall, will have hundreds of sizes and styles available on a first come first serve basis. The boutique will be open on March 13 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. to all girls, as long as they have a valid high school ID or proof of enrollment. Don't let missing out on prom become a problem for any girl, spread the word!
