The Prom Closet officially opened for Prom Season this evening at Ryan Hall, located at the rear of 605 N. Main.
Christian Fair, Founder of The Prom Closet, said that after her 3 daughters ended up with a several prom dresses that they no longer had use for and she figured that there were probably other people who also had leftover prom dresses that were only used for one night. She came up with the idea to call out to other people through Facebook in order to collect dresses and pass them on to other girls who could use them for their prom.
Here, Fair explained that the purpose of the Prom Closet is to help high school-aged girls and guys be able to easily access prom attire like prom dresses or tuxes.
There are many different styles and sizes of dresses, shoes, and jewelry that are available at The Prom Closet, as well as tuxes and a gift certificate to purchase a tux from Bealle's.
The Prom Closet is opened from 5:30 PM – 8 PM on Monday and Tuesdays through Prom Season. Anyone can stop in and check it out during those times, but an appointment can also be made by contacting Christian at 432-816-3573.
They’ll also be accepting donations of prom dresses, tuxes, as well as any other items that could make getting ready for prom a little pricey, such as gift certificates for hair, nails, etc.
