Junior Service League of Beaufort collecting dresses for "Prom Boutique"

Posted: Updated:

Prom may be a few months away, but a Beaufort service group is hoping you will help them make it a memorable day for young girls.

The Junior Service League of Beaufort is collecting trendy, gently-used formal and semi-formal gowns for its fourth annual Prom Boutique.

The dresses and accessories will be offered free of charge to teenage girls who may not be able to afford it.

So far they've collected almost 80 dresses, but they need more.

"Prom is expensive, we are focused on improving girls' self-esteem in Beaufort County, we want every girl to have the chance to feel like a princess on the night of her prom," said Elizabeth Klosterman of the Junior Service League of Beaufort.  

The Prom Boutique is happening on March 15 from 2-6 p.m.  at the Academy of Career Excellence in Ridgeland.
