Proms have become a rite of passage for so many of our Prince Georges County students. Once Upon a Gown PG Prom Project has teamed up with SEAC, Inc. to minimize the clothing costs often associated with attending a prom.  The purpose of the Once Upon a Gown PG Prom Project is to provide students who may not have the financial means access to gently used prom gowns, shoes, and/or accessories. Through this project, The Prince Georges County community has the opportunity to support these students by donating or seeking donations of gently used prom attire and accessories.  

still Interested in a gown? 

Although the official event has passed, we still have lots of gowns available for any high school or middle school students looking for support with your 2017 prom. Please contact us so we can set up a time, place for you to try on gowns!
