ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Every girl deserves a chance to go to their high school prom.
The non-profit Once Upon a Prom believes it’s one of the most defining moments in a young girl’s life.
For numerous reasons many young ladies cannot afford all the bells and whistles that seem so standard for that supposed-to-be-magical evening.
|After years of being understated and elegant, |
prom dresses have gone back to the "Barbie
Princess" style with a vengeance.
MiX107.3’s Tommy Show and ZIPS Dry Cleaners are teaming up to grow Once Upon a Prom’s stockpile of dresses.
Between April 15-24 drop off your gently used prom dress or bride’s maid gown to one of the 14 participating ZIPS Dry Cleaners in the DC/MD/VA area.
The dresses will be collected, cleaned, and distributed at the Once Upon a Prom’s Dress Giveaway on May 1 from 9 am to 5 pm in Eastern Market.
Join Tommy McFLY Saturday, April 24 from 4-6p at ZIPS Manassas, VA (9685 Liberia Avenue) location to wrap up the drive and enjoy FREE Georgetown Cupcakes and MIX107.3 Prizes.
Participating ZIPS Locations in DC include: Alexandria, Rockville, College Park, Lanham, Marlow Heights, Laurel, Scaggsville, Gambrills, Annapolis, Manassas, Fairfax. Falls Church and Dumfries. Visit 321zips.com for address and phone numbers.
