Local Teens Can Get Free Prom Dresses, Accessories Next Saturday

Mark your calendar if you want to get a free prom outfit.

Reston-area high school and middle school students can each get a free dress, shoes, jewelry and other accessories at the Reston Community Center’s 17th annual dress giveaway next Saturday (March 30).

The free shopping event will offer dresses in a range of sizes. Volunteers will help teens pick out shoes, jewelry, handbags and other items to help complete their looks.

“The beauty of this event is revealed in the countless special evenings enjoyed by the teens who acquire their dance attire here at no cost and thus are able to thoroughly enjoy this rite of passage,” RCC’s Executive Director Leila Gordon said in a press release.

Back in February, RCC held an accessories drive — the community center already had enough dresses stockpiled away — that collected hundreds of items, according to RCC.

The event takes place from 11 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne (1609-A Washington Plaza).
