Spring and Summer 2017 Youth Programs

 

TEENS 
 
ROCK the PROM!
Professionally cleaned, gently used prom dresses will be distributed for FREE to high school teens. The cost of attending prom is crazy high these days.  Gowns can cost between $100 - $400!   Because going to prom is such a special event for every high school student, and we all want everyone to go, AH Teen Council has partnered with ROCKit (Rochester Outreach and Charity for Kids) who will collect, clean, and then provide a dress to every girl at ROCK the PROM! 
 
Teens will find over 500 gowns sizes 0 – 20 on display along with free shoes, shawls, purses and jewelry to choose from.  ROCK the PROM is a great opportunity to find the perfect short, long, vintage, or upcycled gown with your friends. Appointments are not required, however, you can RSVP to 248-651-8197 x 171.  Please leave your name & phone number.  If you are on our RSVP list, you will go to the front of the line to choose your dress!  The event is open to all students in Northern Oakland County.  Please bring your High School ID.
