Local Nonprofit Announces 2014 Prom Dress Giveaway Dates and Locations


PALM DESERT, Calif., March 22, 2014 — Desert Best Friend’s Closet (DBFC) is proud to announce the dates and locations for its 2014 Prom Dress Giveaway. DBFC intends to honor young women and their commitment to earning a high school diploma by providing them with formal wear and accessories for the traditional high school prom. 

Participants must make an appointment and bring a valid school ID card. (Walk-ins will not be accepted.) Call 1-949-350-5102 or send an e-mail message to promdress@bfcloset.org to schedule your appointment. Please include your first and last name, cell phone number, and e-mail address and your event date and location.

This program is open to high school seniors in the Coachella Valley. Participants must be present to select a dress. No one may select a dress for someone else. Please do not bring children to these events.

Girls will receive one dress and possibly an accessory (depending on size and availability). Dress availability in sizes 0-2 and 16 and above is very limited. We cannot guarantee that we will have sufficient inventory in these sizes, but we try very hard to accommodate everyone!

(Please do not donate dresses with stains, tears or broken zippers.)


We are also looking for donations of shoes, wraps, evening bags and "bling" (jewelry). For more information, call 1-949-350-5102 or email promdress@bfcloset.org.
