DCPS Students Shop ‘Till They Drop in Prom Dress Boutique

Well, it looks like there will be some very lucky young ladies going to Prom this year, thanks to the efforts of DCPS and everyone who helped contribute to their annual Prom Dress Collection.  Last week after the collection was complete, students had the opportunity to shop in the boutique for gently used dresses and accessories, at no cost to them.  There was even a professional make-up artist on hand to make the day extra-special… what more could a girl ask for?!

The day would not have been possible without several other donors that lent their services.   Target provided gift cards, the Body Shop donated gift bags, Buzz Bakery and Café took care of the cupcakes, and Neiman Marcus was responsible for hangers, shopping bags, and garment bags.  Prom season is looking good already!

Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, Courtney found herself in DC in the fall of 2005 when she began her studies at Howard Univeristy as a journalism student. Over the span of her collegiate career, Courtney began to realize that the District had grown on her within the few short years she had been here. She loves tv, food, shopping, and all things “girly.” She looks forward to experiencing everything the city has to offer. Read why Courtney loves DC .
