FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RESTON, VA – Reston Community Center will host its Annual Diva Central Prom Dress Giveaway on Saturday, April 25 from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne, 1609-A Washington Plaza in Reston. This incredible one-day event is the perfect prom dress shopping experience, open to any current high school student who is in need of a prom dress, shoes, jewelry and other accessories. Everything is absolutely FREE. Limit one dress per person.
“Prom is an event that many teens look forward to all year, but it is also an event that can burden families with expenses for formal wear, accessories, a meal, transportation and more,” said Kenny Burrowes, RCC Teen and Family Program Director. “Through Diva Central, RCC helps teens look forward to the prom night of their dreams, complete with the perfect dress and accessories, but without those costs.”
In addition to prom dresses in all colors, sizes and styles, volunteers will be on hand to help teens select shoes, jewelry, handbags, wraps, and other accessories to complete their prom look. Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa – Reston will be on hand to provide hair and makeup services to teens.
All of the dresses available at the event have been donated by the local community between January and March. 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.
To learn more about the event please contact Kenny Burrowes, RCC Teen and Family Program Director, at Kenny.Burrowes@fairfaxcounty.gov or visit.

Since 2003, Diva Central’s mission has been to promote confidence and self-esteem by providing free prom dresses to area high school girls. Each year, RCC collects gently-used and dry-cleaned dresses at donation sites around Reston, and local sponsors donate gift certificates and other prom-related services to help the students create a truly memorable night. Its quest is to present an opportunity for young ladies to experience an once-in-a-lifetime event, and promotes the confidence essential to setting and attaining goals in their future. All local high school students are invited to attend and “shop” for dresses, shoes and other accessories for free. All donations are tax-deductible.
