Event Gives Local Teens an Opportunity to Receive FREE Prom Attire
Prom is becoming an increasingly expensive experience for high school students. Through generous donations from the community, RCC hopes to lessen that financial burden by giving local teens the opportunity to create their entire prom look for free.
This year’s Diva Central, RCC’s prom dress giveaway event, is planned for Saturday, March 25, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne, 1609-A Washington Plaza in Reston. All local middle and high school students are invited to attend and “shop” for free dresses, shoes, and other accessories. This event will feature hundreds of dresses in all colors, sizes, and styles, as well as shoes, jewelry, handbags, wraps, and other accessories. Diva Central will also hold raffle drawings for prizes donated by local businesses. All area teens are invited; participants must be actively enrolled in a middle or high school and eligible to attend a formal dance. There is a limit of one dress per person. Admission is free.
This annual event is made possible with generous volunteer support from Reston community members, as well as the Delta Sigma Theta Fairfax Alumni Chapter. Since 2003, Diva Central’s mission has been to promote confidence and self-esteem in young people. Each year, RCC collects gently-used and dry-cleaned dresses at donation sites around Reston, and local businesses donate gift certificates and other prom-related services to help the students create a truly memorable experience.
