4th Annual Prom Dash A Success for Palm Beach County
BBBS is proud to announce the success of the organization’s fourth annual Prom Dash event. Prom Dash has been held every year for the past four years in Martin County and was held in the Palm Beach County area for the first time this year.
Prom Dash was an exciting opportunity for Palm Beach County high school girls to find the perfect dress, even those who cannot afford to purchase gowns on their own. They were invited to choose from Big Brothers Big Sisters’ large selection of donated dresses. Girls made appointments to view, try on and select gowns. The appointments were confidential and completely private. Big Brothers Big Sisters had a wide variety of dresses in different colors and styles, as well as shoes and jewelry to choose from.
“Prom Dash ensures that no high school girl miss out on a special event like her prom for any reason, especially finances,” said President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, William Bee. “We were pleased to provide the opportunity to help young girls create lasting memories.”
