All dresses and accessories will be distributed free of charge to girls of families across Long Island who cannot easily absorb the expense of a new gown for their prom, awards ceremony, or graduation.  High school guidance counselors, at-risk youth agencies, group homes, and church outreaches make the program available to their constituents.  A special emphasis this year will be on Long Island families impacted by Super Storm Sandy.  Over 1,500 girls benefited in 2012 from 53 different schools and nonprofit youth organizations across Long Island.

Westy Self Storage is generously donating storage space for the donations. The Prom Boutique is made possible in part by a grant from JP Morgan Chase Employee Volunteerism & Giving Program.
