Since 2010, East Maryville Baptist Church has been making prom night a reality for lots of teen girls who might otherwise not be able to attend. The church has organized “A Time to Dance,” where any girl who needs a dress can come select one and take it home absolutely free.
Hundreds of fashionable gowns in a variety of styles and sizes have been given away since the event started in 2010. Accessories will also be available at no cost.
“A Time to Dance” is a project of Acteens at East Maryville. It is a missions organization for girls in grades seven through 12.
It can cost a pretty penny to outfit someone for prom, organizers know. This is one way East Maryville can help out its community.
The church invites any girl who needs a prom dress to attend.
There will be people there to assist in selecting a gown and accessories.
Dressing rooms will be available. Many who have attended in the past said they would not have been able to afford a dress for prom and are grateful to East Maryville for hosting the event.
Refreshments will be served Friday and Saturday. It will be a great atmosphere for shopping.
