What a simply great way to start the month! Thanks to the Comerica Prom Dress Drive and the generosity of hundreds of strangers, 750 young women at Dallas CASA and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas have been able to pick, choose and take home new or gently-used, formal dresses as well as accessories for their proms.
According to Dallas CASA Children’s Council President Hannah May, “Comerica Bank has sponsored the prom dress drive for the past five years, and Dallas CASA is so grateful to be one of the two recipients. The dress is one of the most important parts of the prom, and to see girls come in with workout gear on and be transformed is really remarkable. At first they’re shy and may not even know their size or what style they like. But by the end, when they look in the mirror for the first time wearing a dress they love, their faces just light up.”
Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas VP of Program Cherri Rowe added, “When you reminisce about your high school days, one of the first things that comes to mind is your prom. It is a night where everyone feels beautiful, special and important. We are honored to be a part of a milestone that these beautiful young ladies will remember for the rest of their lives.”
Another source joining the fun for the second year was a “generous donation of new dresses from Gala Formal” at Grapevine Mills Mall.
If you were one of those who made a donation in February, smile. Your dress is going to the prom.
