Teens shopping at RCC's Diva CentralRESTON, VA — Reston Community Center will host its Annual Diva Central Prom Dress Giveaway on Saturday, March 24 from noon until 6 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne, 1609-A Washington Plaza in Reston.

This incredible, one-day event is the perfect shopping experience for teens to outfit themselves for prom, spring formals and other dressy events.

The event is open to any current high school or middle school student who is in need of a dress, shoes, jewelry and other accessories. Everything is absolutely FREE. Limit one dress per person.

RCC put out the call for dress and accessory donations during February. The community generously responded, with hundreds of dresses filling RCC’s donation boxes. Volunteers, including a makeup artist available from 4 to 6 p.m., will be at the event to help teens select shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories to complete their formal look.

“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.
