Jessica McClintock, Agassi Boys & Girls Club Assist Las Vegas Prom Closet

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas Prom Closet is collecting gently used and dry cleaned prom and bridesmaid dresses and accessories (handbags, shoes and jewelry) through March 29. Items can be dropped off at the Jessica McClintock store at the Fashion Show Mall, 3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South.

The Prom Closet “store” will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 5 and Saturday April 12, at The Agassi Boys & Girls Club, located at 800 N. Martin L. King Blvd.

Students wishing to attend a prom but who cannot afford a dress will be able to choose from an array of more than 800 gently used prom dresses and accessories. A school ID is required at the Prom Closet. Items are provided at no charge to students.
Las Vegas Prom Closet is staffed and run by volunteers, and all donations directly benefit students.

Las Vegas Prom Closet is a non-profit organization dedicated to making prom a reality for students who wish to attend, but could not otherwise afford the expense. The organization’s focus is to distribute gently used prom attire to disadvantaged young women. It also provides financial assistance to young men needing tuxedo rentals, girls needed hair and make-up design, and couples needing assistance with dinner/entertainment options.

Las Vegas Prom Closet, formerly known as Aly's Prom Closet, was founded by the mother of a girl killed in a car accident. The mother, Becky Christensen, and countless volunteers, donors and sponsors have made it possible for hundreds of girls to attend their proms who might not otherwise be able to afford to do so. Anyone with gently used prom dresses are encouraged to donate them for this caring cause.
