Helping girls have amazing prom, on a budget

Posted: Updated:

Going to prom is a right of passage, and a special memory for many high school students.  Sadly, the cost of the glitz and glamour associated with the big night, can keep some teenagers from experiencing prom.  That's one reason folks are teaming up for the 3rd annual House of Prom.  Midtown Village and Clear Channel's 94.1 WZBQ are partnering to host the event.  The shopping center will provide high school girls an opportunity to purchase affordable prom dresses, while supporting Turning Point, a valued community service.

Midtown Village is accepting donations of gently used, formal attire.  You can drop off formal dresses like bridesmaid, pageant, and prom dresses now through March 1 at AzWell, Bevello, Lucca, Old Navy, and SOCA, all at Midtown Village.  Just go during their normal business hours.

The donated dresses will be sold Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Suite 206 at Midtown Village, between SOCA and Shades. All dresses will be priced at $10, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit Turning Point, a local organization that helps victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
The event provides an opportunity to turn once-treasured formal attire into a must-have prom dress for high school girls, while benefiting Turning Point.
