Zonata Club to Host Prom Boutique This Saturday in Longview
When you're in high school, prom is typically the highlight of the year. Everyone has an excuse to get dressed up, grab a date, and have a great night dancing away with their friends. But sometimes, prom can take a toll on ones wallet. Well a group in Longview has decided to help out.
The Zonata Club in Longview is hosting its annual Prom Boutique this weekend. Girls who are getting ready for their prom can go and pick out any dress they want for free. That's right, I said FREE.
Cady Martin, one of the women involved, said that after Hurricane Katrina hit people in Louisiana began collecting prom dresses for girls who's family had been hit by the storm. The idea caught on and now people all across the nation are doing the same. She says the group has over 3,000 dresses in all colors, shapes, and sizes.
And there is no catch. All of the dresses and accessories were donated and ANYONE is welcome to browse. You don't have to prove income or residency, you don't have to prove anything at all. There are no restrictions on who can and can't get a dress.
So head on out to the Longview Regional Medical Center this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. to find your perfect dress.
