For just $10, teens can select a dress from thousands of gently-used and new designer items, including a limited selection of menswear. Seamstresses will be available onsite to do limited alterations. Those unable to donate won’t be turned away – the goal of the event is to ensure every teen can attend their big day in style.

Now in its third year, the event is hosted by local non-profit The Prom Dress Exchange Corp. Additional sponsors who make the event possible include Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, LUPEC Denver, Ocean Cleaners of Commerce City, Hollywood Cowgirl Boutique Denver, Insit, LLC and Communications For Your Business
