To honor our 10th year of giving dresses to those in need, a contest ran in February to guess how many young women the LSC-CF Prom Closet has helped over the past decade. The entry with the closest guess received a gift certificate.
DIONNE HILL is the contest winner, guessing closest to the number of girls (2,266) that Prom Closet has helped over the first 9 years of the program. Dionne is an educator, having a doctorate (EDD) in the field of mental health and working for the Mental Health Mental Retardation Authority (MHMRA). She is also a library patron, frequently meeting in the library with her sorority Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

RULES & REGULATIONS, Flier (PDF)
*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.
Thank you to the many individuals, companies and organizations who volunteer their time to help organize the dresses, assist the young women in finding the perfect gown and donate gift cards, gift baskets, dresses, accessories and beauty services.
Many beautiful dresses, prom shoes and services have been generously donated by the following stores and companies:
Chick-fil-A, Copperfield, TX
The Silver Hanger, Katy, TX
Eesh Formals, Houston, TX
Prom Shoes: an online store with beautiful, reasonably priced prom shoes.
