Free dresses available for high school girls to wear to prom & special occasion

(Erie County, NY) -- Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon, Urban Valet Dry Cleaners and Performing Arts Dance Academy announce the dates for the 5th annual Prom Dress Drive Shopping Days. Local high school girls are invited to attend the shopping event to find a free gown for prom or other special event at from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 5 or noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 6, at Performing Arts Dance Academy, 206 Lake St., Hamburg, NY.

Thanks to the generosity of the community, hundreds of dresses have been donated. The gowns will be cleaned thanks to Urban Valet Dry Cleaners to be ready for the big dance or event.

“This event grows each year with great dresses available for the girls to look through. I want to thank the community for their support, in addition to Urban Valet and Performing Arts Dance Academy, for making the 5th annual Prom Dress Drive a success, and don’t forget, dresses can be donated until March 21,” said Legislator Dixon. “The collection of dresses will be made available to local girls on April 5 and 6 who are in need of a dress for the prom. With the cost of prom skyrocketing, reusing gowns that have only been worn once makes perfect sense.”

A variety of sizes, colors and styles will be available. All high school age girls are welcome to attend to choose one gown each. Attendees will be allowed into the shopping area on a first-come, first basis.

"Even though we see the generosity of our community each year, we are still always shocked to see their continued support. This year, more than ever, the dresses that were donated are outstanding. We thank Legislator Dixon for her dedication to this project, and to Performing Arts Dance Academy for opening their doors for our free sale event. We can't wait to see these dresses go to a good home," said Jackie O'Malley, Urban Valet Dry Cleaners Director of Business Development.
