Reston Community Center will host its 14th annual Diva Central Prom Dress Giveaway on Saturday, April 23 from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne (1609-A Washington Plaza).

RCC has been collecting gently used formal items from the community to stock for its annual shopping experience.

Diva Central is open to any current high school student who is in need of a prom dress, shoes, jewelry and other accessories. Everything is FREE. Limit one dress per person.

“Prom is becoming an increasingly expensive experience for high school students. We hope to lessen that financial burden by giving local teens the opportunity to create their entire prom look for free,” says RCC Leisure and Learning Director Eileen Boone. “We always receive beautiful dresses and accessory donations from the community; it feels good to know that these items will become a part of a cherished high school experience for so many young ladies in the Reston area.”

This year, with the help of Boston Properties and the generosity of the Reston community, Diva Central has collected several hundred dresses for the giveaway event. In addition to prom dresses in all colors, sizes and styles, volunteers will be on hand to help teens select shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories to complete their prom look.
