Attn NoVA/DC/MD High School Students + Parents :: Prom Confidence Event + Giveaway on March 24th

On Saturday, March 24, local merchants and activists for young people will come together to make some prom dreams come true for teenagers in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. The group previously hosted makeovers with local teens, including the one featured in the video above of Nailah Phillips, a sophomore at Heritage HIgh School in Leesburg. Perhaps the best part about these makeovers is that the team bases its prom and homecoming events not only on making over the outside, but on reminding teens first, to see and appreciate their strengths, and second, to know that each is truly special.

The upcoming event---dubbed Prom Confidence---is the group's second annual and will be held at Annalee's Prom, Bridal, Special Occasion, & Tuxedo on Saturday, March 24, from 2-4. Annalee's owner, Jenet Ahn is a mother to three teens and is a very active community steward and philanthropist. The event emcees---Leesburg-based Style Guru, Leigh Macdonald of NiceShoesNoDrama.com and NoDrama.tv, and 'Onix' Wil Lash of Anacostia and Vh1's I Love NY---are likewise stewards for today's youth and will share tips for teens regarding being their best and ensuring that prom is fun, safe, and memorable.

There will also be tons of giveaways . . . for girls AND guys. Winners will walk away with a myriad of prizes, including a prom dress from Annalee's, a tuxedo, also from Annalee's, limo services by Reston Limo, prom day makeup services by Jamie D'Agostino Makeup Artistry; skincare by Reston Facial Plastics; a formal portrait session with Cavalheri Photography; prom day photos by Scene2BSeenLoudoun.com; men's grooming by Roosters; heated spray tan by Skinny Tan; and much, much more.
