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 1,500 girls benefited in 2015 from 65 different schools and nonprofit youth organizations across Long Island. Created at the Junior League of Long Island in 1995 and added to the array of community service projects at the Long Island Volunteer Center in 1999, this event is made possible with generous funding from Bellmore Lions Club, Weight Watchers, LIU Post Long Island Volunteers Service Club, Friends of Lana, and Zurich NA.
