If you’re doing some spring cleaning and find some old prom dresses, shoes, and purses – don’t throw them out. You can donate your “gently used” prom dresses and accessories to the 6th Annual WSLM SAY YES TO THE PROM DRESS event set for Sunday, Feb 9 from 1-3p at 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. 

There will be dresses from a variety of department stores as well as items donated from individuals all over Kentuckiana. 

“Prom season is upon us and I want all the girls in the Kentuckiana area to experience the prom,” said White. “They can use the money they would normally spend on a dress for other things.”

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 Association Cardinal Community Service Award in 2018 for the event among all radio stations in the 9th Congressional District. The event began in 2015. 

The event has collected over $20,000 worth of dresses and accessories and has given away more than half of that to girls in the Kentuckiana area.
