RESTON COMMUNITY CENTER HOSTS 16th ANNUAL PROM DRESS GIVEAWAY (PDF)
RESTON, 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.
