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. Over 1,800 girls benefited in 2014 from 71 different schools and nonprofit youth organizations across Long Island. This event is made possible with generous donations from Bellmore Lions Club, Friends of Lana and Weight Watchers and The Shana Kay Memorial Foundation – Shana passed away in 2005 at the age of 19. Her foundation funds community projects to keep her memory alive.
