This prom season, future promgoers can get lightly used dresses, formal shoes, and accessories at no charge at all! On March 8th-9th (Fri-Sat), Oakmont’s National Honors Society hosts their annual Dress Drive. On Friday, it will be running from 4-6 pm, and on Saturday it will be from 11 am-3 pm.

You can also donate to this great cause if you have any used dresses of all sizes and varieties that you don’t need anymore. Also, feel free to donate heels, handbags, ties, jewelry, or any other accessories you may have. Bring donations to NHS adviser Mrs. Stefanokos´s room before March 7th. 

There will be food, drinks, and music in the Oakmont lobby available to everyone while trying on dresses. It is a great way to find formal items with the spring season approaching. This Dress Drive could be a perfect opportunity for finding a prom gown, a homecoming look for next year, or a dress for any other special occasion. Other schools in local areas also will be attending and donating to the Dress Drive such as St. Bernard´s, Monty Tech, and Murdock. 

Stefanakos said hundreds of dresses were collected and is hoping for as good of an outcome as last year. When asked what the most rewarding part of the dress drive was, Stefonakos said, “The smiles on the girls’ faces. One girl looked at me and said she couldn’t decide between the two dresses and I told her to take both. Later on, I found out that the reason she was able to go to prom was because of the dress drive. It left me – along with all of the students that ran the event – with such a good feeling about what we were doing.”
