Our Annual Community Giving Program

(Prom Dress Give Away)

Every year we have our annual community give back program - called Prom Girls Rock!


The program is about assisting young ladies with their transition from high school to college.  


Prom Girls Rock! provides low income students free dresses for Prom.  We then help those same students with items needed for college by providing scholarships, resources and direction.


Most of our dresses are donated from local bridal shops.  Each year are events are successful due to the generous donations we receive and the eager volunteers willing to help.


Our goal is to make prom and college dreams come true for these young ladies
