Girls get free prom dresses at service league event

1 min read

The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB) hosted its sixth annual Prom Boutique March 11 at the YMCA of Beaufort. 

Members hosted 30 VIP attendees for a specialty hour where they were given first choice on racks of dresses. Each young lady left with her very own special dress, jewelry and accessories, as well as makeup, nail polish, and a choice of either a free hair styling session for the night of prom or a bra from Kalon and Company. The hair styling sessions were donated by Bangs Salon, Cirque 1838 Salon, and HairPlay Salon & Color Bar. The bra was courtesy of Kalon and Company. 

The event then opened up to any junior or senior in Beaufort, Jasper or Hampton counties. Another 45 girls attended and nearly all left with dresses. 

“We are so excited to continually grow this every year,” said Missy Nelson, JSLB Prom Boutique co-chairwoman. “This year we had more deserving young ladies during our VIP hour and we’ve given away more dresses than ever. Due to the gracious donations of the ladies of Beaufort County, our dress collection has grown so we could extend this opportunity to young ladies in Hampton County and reach further than ever.”
