Forrest General’s Spirit Girls host annual Prom-A-Palooza
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – (Feb. 3, 2020) Forrest General’s Spirit Girls will host its annual Prom-A-Palooza event on March 8 at Bliss Bridal in Downtown Hattiesburg.
Prom-A-Palooza will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. for high school girls to shop and try on dresses, which will be available to rent for $12. The funds collected from dress rentals will be used for dry cleaning and storage for the following year.
“This event is a way for our Spirit Girls to help their peers and give them an example of what it looks like to encourage other women,” said Tyra Willamor, Spirit Girls and Sweeteas coordinator. “The girls renting dresses will take away memories that will last a lifetime without the financial burden of buying a dress.”
The Spirit Girls have collected more than 400 gowns in all sizes, styles and colors for the event in addition to formal shoes and jewelry. All of these items were donated for Prom-A-Palooza.
Dresses and accessories are being accepted through March 2 in the Marketing Department at Forrest General’s Support Services Building, 125 South 28th Ave.
Organizations are invited to submit requests for assistance from Spirit Girls at their upcoming events with notice at least 30 days in advance.
