The event will feature more than 800 prom dresses ranging in sizes 0-26. All of the dresses featured at the event have been donated to the non-profit organization throughout the year by various local retail shops and individuals across the Delmarva Peninsula. Gown accessories will also be featured and will be given away to each attendee at no cost. The event is free and open to high school women. High school students must present their student ID to enter the event and receive their free dress and accessory.

PROMISE is currently accepting new and gently used formal gowns, bridesmaid dresses , purses, and shoes. Volunteers are needed to help at the event.

PROMISE, a Salisbury-based nonprofit organization, is an all-volunteer group with a vision to help prom dreams come true. In 2012, PROMISE was co-founded by Hannah and Betsy Robinson (a mother and daughter) and a small group of friends. Its mission was to collect formal gowns and give them away, free of charge, to high school women.
Successfully into its seventh year, the group retains that one mission: to collect prom gowns and distribute them without cost to high school women who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend prom due to the expense. Receiving a gown presents an opportunity for young ladies to experience a once-in-a lifetime event, and promotes the confidence essential to setting and attaining goals in their future.
