Reston Community Center Hosts 17th Annual Formal Dress Giveaway

Event Gives Local Teens an Opportunity to Receive FREE Attire

Reston Community Center will host its annual Diva Central dress giveaway on Saturday, March 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at RCC Lake Anne, 1609-A Washington Plaza in Reston.

This one-day event is the perfect shopping experience for any current Reston-area high school or middle school student who is in need of a dress, shoes, jewelry and other accessories. Everything is absolutely FREE. Limit one dress per person.

“The beauty of this event is revealed in the countless special evenings enjoyed by the teens who acquire their dance attire here at no cost – and thus are able to thoroughly enjoy this rite of passage,” said Leila Gordon, RCC’s executive director.

Reston Community Center held an accessories drive in February, and hundreds of beautiful items were donated by the community. Those accessories have been added to the extensive collection of dresses in a wide variety of sizes that will be available at this year’s Diva Central. Volunteers will be on hand at the event to help teens select shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories to complete their formal dance look.
