Snow may still be melting, but it is time to think about the prom.
Reston Community Center will be holdings its annual Diva Central prom dress giveaway Saturday, March 8 at RCC-Lake Anne from noon to 6 p.m.
This is the 12th year RCC has hosted Diva Central. The community center spends months collected gently used dresses, shoes, jewelry, shawls and accessories from residents. Area teens can choose their favorites — all for free.
Since 2003, Diva Central’s mission has been to promote confidence and self-esteem by providing free prom dresses to area high school girls, RCC says.
“Prom is an event that many teens look forward to all year, but it is also an event that can burden families with expenses for formal wear, accessories, a meal, transportation and more,” said RCC Teen Program Director Kenny Burrowes. “Through Diva Central, RCC helps teens look forward to the prom night of their dreams, complete with the perfect dress and accessories, but without those costs.”
