Project 150 will host a boutique style shopping day at the Zappos.com event plaza for Las Vegas high school students who wish to attend prom but who cannot afford the expense.

Students can shop FREE for one complete formal outfit when they present their student ID. Free haircuts available on a first come, first serve basis. Students can bring one guest with them to this amazing FREE shopping experience.
Volunteers have invested endless hours to ensure this popular event for high school students is fully stocked with top of the line formal prom clothing items, shoes, and accessories donated generously by sponsors and community donors.
