Prom night is a milestone of a young woman’s life and every girl should be able to attend and feel like royalty. Joan England’s second annual Project PROMises prom dress event is allowing girls who may not be able to afford a dress the chance to find their perfect fit.

The PROMises prom dress drive will take place on Saturday, March 28, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council, located at 59-03 Summerfield St. in Ridgewood, where middle school and high school girls looking for a dress for their prom can try on and pick out the perfect one, free of charge.

All students need to bring is a parent, their school ID or a copy of their report card. Over 200 gently used dresses were graciously donated by girls and women of the community for the event.
