There is a five-city initiative called “Say Yes to the Prom” where deserving local high school students are invited to receive full prom makeovers – dresses, tuxes, alterations, hair, makeup, etc. and of course they get to keep everything!
The event is LA at the Intercontinental April 13th (Tomorrow)
Monte Durham is the host of this event, and he’s going to talk trends, the amazing cause and his participation in it.
TLC CELEBRATES FIFTH ANNUAL SAY YES TO THE PROM INITIATIVE WITH EVENTS FOR DESERVING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
First-ever SAY YES TO THE PROM special to premiere on TLC on Friday, May 20
TLC’s SAY YES TO THE PROM initiative will return this spring alongside AT&T® to offer deserving high school students across the country the opportunity to have the prom of their dreams. The program, designed to remove the financial burden of the milestone event while building self-confidence and a sense of empowerment among its academically strong participants, will bring a day of mentorship, prom dress shopping and tuxedo rental fittings, as well as head-to-toe makeovers from star of TLC’s SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA Monte Durham, to more than 300 students across the country this year.
The biggest and most impactful initiative to date, SAY YES TO THE PROM will make stops in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas and Silver Spring, Md. in 2016 and for the first time welcome young men in addition to young women to participate in the nationwide tour. A one-hour SAY YES TO THE PROM special, the first-ever chronicling the initiative, will air on TLC on Friday, May 20 at 9/8c
SAY YES TO THE PROM will offer students in each location an opportunity to select from a dazzling array of more than 2,000 donated dresses and tuxedo rentals, as well as a wide range of accessories and shoes. Paired with a professional mentor turned style advisor for the day, each student will be treated to custom tailoring services, full hair and makeup and one-on-one style sessions with Monte. A red-carpet, runway reveal show will wrap up each event, giving participants the chance to stand in the spotlight and show off their new prom-ready looks.
Dates and locations for the 2016 SAY YES TO THE PROM tour include:
April 13 in Los Angeles, Calif.
April 18 in Dallas, Texas
May 3 in Silver Spring, Md
