Helping girls have amazing prom, on a budget

Going to prom is a right of passage, and a special memory for many high school students.{} Sadly, the cost of the glitz and glamour associated with the big night, can keep some teenagers from experiencing prom.{} That's one reason folks are teaming up for the 3rd annual House of Prom.{} Midtown Village and Clear Channel's 94.1 WZBQ are partnering to host the event.{} The shopping center will provide high school girls an opportunity to purchase affordable prom dresses, while supporting Turning Point, a valued community service.

Midtown Village is accepting donations of gently used, formal attire.{} You can drop off formal dresses like bridesmaid, pageant, and prom dresses now through March 1 at AzWell, Bevello, Lucca, Old Navy, and SOCA, all at Midtown Village.{} Just go during their normal business hours.

The donated dresses will be sold Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Suite 206 at Midtown Village, between SOCA and Shades. All dresses will be priced at $10, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit Turning Point, a local organization that helps victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.The event provides an opportunity to turn once-treasured formal attire into a must-have prom dress for high school girls, while benefiting Turning Point.
