Reston Community Center to Hold Annual Prom Dress Giveaway

Teens can save money this prom season by attending the Annual Diva Central Prom Dress Giveaway at the Reston Community Center Lake Anne.

The event will be held on March 24 (Saturday) from noon until 6 p.m. The free event is open to all middle and high school students who are in need of a prom or spring formal dress and accessories. There is a limit of one dress per person.

RCC opened up donations for dresses and accessories in February and received hundreds of dresses. Volunteers will be available to help teens select their perfect prom or formal look, and a makeup artist will also be available from 4 to 6 p.m.

“School dances are becoming increasingly expensive experiences for middle and high school students. We hope to lessen that financial burden by giving local teens the opportunity to create their entire prom or dance look for free,” said LaTanja Jones, RCC’s collaboration and outreach director, in a press release.
