RESTON, VA — Reston Community Center will host its Annual Diva Central Prom Dress Giveaway on Saturday, April 23 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 becoming an increasingly expensive experience for high school students. We hope to lessen that financial burden by giving local teens the opportunity to create their entire prom look for free,” said RCC Leisure and Learning Director, Eileen Boone. “We always receive beautiful dresses and accessory donations from the community; it feels good to know that these items will become a part of a cherished high school experience for so many young ladies in the Reston area.”
All dresses were donated by the 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. In addition to prom dresses in all colors, sizes and styles, volunteers will be on hand to help teens select shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories to complete their prom look.
This annual event is made possible with generous support from community partners including Boston Properties, Delta Sigma Theta Fairfax Alumni Chapter, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, Flow Blow Dry Bar, Kalypso’s Sports Tavern, Kendra Scott, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Reston Limousine and Reston Town Center.
