Thirty Roosevelt High School girls began preparations for prom without dishing out any of the cash.
A “Say Yes to the Prom” event was held in Johnston Wednesday. It’s a spin-off from the TLC show “Say Yes to the Dress.”
The girls got to choose from 500 dresses donated by TLC, Discovery and Mediacom.
The girls also got their hair and makeup done and got to pick out shoes and accessories.
There was even a seamstress to make sure the dresses fit just right.
“The concept was to build confidence and empowerment for girls and the selection of a dress for prom is a big deal,” explained Adria Alpert-Romm with Discovery. “When maybe you can’t afford that special night, this is an opportunity for women across the country to say ‘we can help you.’”
After the girls were all dressed to the nines they walked down the catwalk for a runway show.
