Cleaning out your closets? Donate your “gently used” prom dresses and formal gowns to the 5th Annual WSLM SAY YES TO THE PROM DRESS event set for Sunday, March 31 at p in the presentation room of the Salem High School.
WSLM RADIO is collecting prom dresses and gowns as well as all accessories — purses, shoes, gloves, jewelry and hair accessories — for the upcoming event for girls in the WSLM listening area of Scott, Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Orange, Lawrence, Jackson and Madison.
There will be dresses from a variety of department stores, Beloved in Seymour and accessories from Serendipity in Madison as well as items donated from individuals all over Southern Indiana.
“I know some girls don’t have the resources to go to the prom,” said Becky White, WSLM Owner and General Manager. “My goal is that any girl who wants to go to the prom, can get a dress at this event and have the chance to not only look beautiful on the outside but to have an experience that makes her feel like a princess on the inside.”
“Prom season is upon us and I want all the girls in the Kentuckiana area to experience the prom,” said White.
The event is free and open to teen girls in the Kentuckiana area.
“We have many beautiful dresses that are new or gently used items that have been donated. They will help make your prom night affordable and unforgettable,” said White. “This year’s event will be held at Salem High School to accommodate more people.”
WSLM won the Indiana Broadcasters Cardinal Community Service Award in 2018 for the event among all radio stations in the 9th Congressional District. The event began in 2015.
