Project Prom makes dreams come true for Lubbock teens

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Bridge of Lubbock made some dreams come true for teenagers on Saturday with their annual "Project Prom."

The Bridge provides gowns and suits absolutely free for youth in the area, along with hair styling and manicures.

All dresses and services were donated by people and businesses in the community.

Director of Operations Ashley Osborne said, "It's so important for everyone to come out despite their circumstances and be able to have their fairytale day. We want to give them the opportunity to have that perfect dress or a tuxedo."

This is the third year for Project Prom.

The giveaways are open to any teen in need of prom or banquet attire.

The next event is on April 6th at the Bridge from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To donate or get more information, you can contact the Bridge of Lubbock at 1301 Redbud Ave Lubbock, TX 79408 or call (806) 687-0772. You can find them on the web at www.bridgeoflubbock.org.
