SILVER SPRING, Md. - Prom dreams are coming true for more than 200 students at TLC's Say Yes To The Prom initiative.
Hosted at Discovery's Silver Spring headquarters, the event celebrates the soon-to-be-grads by providing them head-to-toe prom attire, hair, makeup, and style consultations.
Now in its seventh year, TLC's Monte Durham says that rewarding the achievements of the students’ builds confidence. "We're hoping that we're inspiring and we're motivating these young students to continue on the path of education," Durham said. "So we're here to celebrate that graduation!"
Macy's, Men's Wearhouse, Katy Perry Collections and Paul Mitchell are just some of the top names in fashion and design that help make sure the students find the look that's just right for them.
And to top it all off - the students that benefit from TLC's Say Yes To The Prom initiative don't just get to wear their fancy threads for prom night - they get to keep everything!
