*Due to the large number of people who attend the event and for chaos not to ensue, it is important that everyone follow some simple rules, be respectful of others, and not to feel entitled. The rules and regulations are linked
here and are posted in front of the event room on the dates listed below. We sponsor the event so that young women (not their moms) on a budget can hopefully each find one free dress in order that they can attend and enjoy their proms. For those who cannot or who are unwilling to follow the rules, you will have to leave the event sans dress. Thank you for your consideration and your help in continuing the Prom Closet.
