For many high school girls, going to the prom is an event anticipated for years, but not going to the prom because the family can’t afford a formal dress can be devastating.
This year, thanks to the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence, a number of high school students will be going to the prom in beautiful dresses donated by local organizations and members of the community.
They will also have an opportunity to select shoes, bags and other accessories contributed by the local community.
