Village of Rochester Hills Joins 96.3 WDVD PROJECT PROM PRINCESS Third Annual Prom Dress Drive

Rochester Hills, MI – Prom is one of the most memorable events in a young lady’s life. Unfortunately, many high school students and their families are feeling the hurt of our tough economy. This should be no reason for girls to be denied the time-honored tradition of going to Prom.

The Village of Rochester Hills has joined efforts with 96.3 WDVD to help less fortunate girls receive a FREE Prom Dress this year!  For the third consecutive year, 96.3 WDVD will be collecting gently worn formal dresses, shoes and accessories (less than 5 years old).

This year’s event will be held at The Village of Rochester Hills (in a storefront between The Gap and Children’s Place) from Friday, April 15-Sunday, April 17.  96.3 WDVD on-air personalities will broadcast from inside the Prom Princess Boutique all weekend long. The mission is to fill the store with racks of dresses, shoes and accessories to make hundreds of girls feel like a true Princess on Prom Night.

Visitors in need will then shop the Project Prom Princess boutique and have the opportunity to win one of 50 free boutonniere and corsage sets, a prom makeover package for hair, nails and tanning or Katy Perry tickets.

“It’s such a great opportunity for The Village and the community to join together and give back to some of the girls who can’t afford a dress for that special prom day,” said Candice Leysen, Marketing Director of The Village of Rochester Hills.

Young ladies that are in need of a prom dress can log onto to fill out a request form. Selected girls will be asked to shop the Prom Princess Boutique to pick out a FREE dress for Prom.
