Say Yes to YOUR prom dress at our FREE Prom Dress GIVE-AWAY event!
This incredible, one-day only event will be an experience to remember! Teens get to find their perfect prom dress, take a photo at our selfie station and share it with their friends and family.
Pickerington Public Library is excited to share this magical partnership with Fairy Goodmothers to host a mini version of their Cinderella’s Closet Boutique experience with our Free Prom Dress give-away! Fairy Goodmothers donated 500 dresses in various colors, sizes and styles.
This event will take place on Saturday, March 26 from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at Pickerington Main Library, 201 Opportunity Way. It is open to any current high school student who is in need of a dress for prom. All dresses are absolutely FREE!
“High school proms have become increasingly expensive experiences. Expenses include prom tickets, dresses, shoes, hair and accessories. Our hope is to lessen that financial burden by giving teens the opportunity to choose a free prom dress, taking that expense off the list. And by doing that it will allow them some wiggle room in affording the prom look of their dreams on their big night,” said Colleen Bauman, Community Engagement Manager.
Registration is required to reserve a time slot. Teens are invited to register for free on the library’s website at www.pickeringtonlibrary.org or the library’s social media platforms. Each participant can select a 30-minute time slot that best fits their schedule. The library staff encourage all teens to wear tank tops and leggings to try on the dresses. Communal dressing rooms will be provided. Additional information is available on our website. Spots are limited; register today!
