The Prom Dress Giveaway is the main focus of our organization. The 2019 Giveaway provided free formal dresses to nearly 3,000 high school students. Students attended the event from all over the state of Oregon and Southwest Washington to receive a prom dress completely free of charge. We continue to be truly amazed at the impact one dress can have in the lives of the students we serve.
Abby's Closet is able to transform a bare, 60,000 square foot space into an intimate, personal boutique for the young women who walk through the door. Sponsorship dollars are used to cover the costs associated with hosting this major event, including venue, moving expenses and our annual college scholarship. In addition, your sponsorship will also benefit our supplemental dress fund. Statistics from previous years show that 25% of our attendees wear size 15 and above. However, we do not receive enough donations in this size range; it only represents about 10% of our inventory. In an effort to supply a quality selection of dresses for all sizes, funds are needed to purchase supplemental dresses at discounted prices.
Please consider supporting the Prom Dress Giveaway through our sponsorship program. Contact Abby’s Closet at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on available opportunities.
