“We are so pleased that the return to school has allowed for spring formal dances and events,” said RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon. “Diva Central has been a generous tradition in our community for nearly 20 years, and countless teens have been outfitted for those special evenings by the donations of Reston residents and businesses. For times like these, when stretching family budgets is more imperative than ever, this event is welcomed by both teens and their parents.”
Reston Community Center held a dress and accessories drive in February, and hundreds of beautiful items were donated by the community. Those have been added to an extensive collection of dresses in a wide variety of sizes that will be available at this year’s Diva Central. Volunteers will be on hand at the event to help teens select shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories to complete their formal dance look.
