Prom is supposed to be the night of a teen girl’s dreams, but the high cost of dresses prevents some from attending the event. The Washington-Lee High School PTA is holding a drive to make sure every girl can afford to attend prom.
The “Formals for Five” event collects new and gently used dresses, jewelry and other prom accessories that will be sold for $5 to Arlington high school students. Proceeds go to the Washington-Lee PTA.
Donations can be made until April 20, and the sale takes place from 3:00-7:00 p.m. at Washington-Lee High School on April 23 and 24.
Drop off bins are located at the following Arlington locations:
- 430 N. Kenmore Street
- 3806 S. 16th Street
- 5850 N. 26th Street
- 1101 S. Quinn Street
- 346 N. Kensington Street
- 3510 N. Pershing Drive
- Washington-Lee High School (1301 N. Stafford Street) Main Office
Organizers are also seeking sponsors for the event. Sponsorship helps with the purchase of clothing racks, donation bins and refreshments at the event. To become a sponsor or to volunteer for either day of the event, email [email protected]
