YW Prom Dress Project

March 5-7

Bristol, Tenn. – Last year’s sparkle can light up a girl for the upcoming 2020 prom season. Teens and young women have a unique opportunity to “pay it forward”, by donating their previously worn prom accessories to the YWCA Prom Dress Project. Every girl should have the opportunity to wear a beautiful dress with accessories to their special event!

“Get involved and contribute to help our young ladies across the region have a wonderful prom experience,” said Tammy Alls, Director of Mission Advancement. “All contributions are immensely appreciated and will make a difference for making her night special!”

This year’s Prom Dress Project, is open to all area high school girls and will be held at the YWCA on Thursday and Friday, March 5th and 6th from 3 pm to 6 pm and Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 8 am to 5 pm. The sale will feature hundreds of previously worn gowns and accessories at a deeply discounted price of only $25. Scholarships are available to any girl needing assistance.

This community service project is hosted by the YWCA Junior Board of Directors- a diverse group of women ages 20-40 with a desire to enhance their servant leadership skills in our community. If you would like more information about the Prom Dress Project or the YWCA Junior Board of Directors, please call the YWCA at 423.968.9444 or emailthenkel@ywcatnva.org.
