Prom night can be one of the best -- and most expensive -- nights of a high-schooler’s life. But it comes at a cost. According to a 2017 survey, Prom Across America, Midwest teens spend at least $610 on prom.

This cost is often strapping for a family, especially when they have multiple children attending the iconic event. Dionna Helping Hands is offering students the opportunity to get an entirely free prom look, including shoes, dresses and jewelry at their Operation Prom Dress Party event on April 7.

Even this comes at a cost, and the organization is asking for donations -- both monetary and physical -- to help support this event. Donations are being accepted via PayPal, and will be used to help shop for necessary items.
