Dignity Health Sports Park’s ASCSC Community Foundation will partner with AT&T and Becca’s Closet to host a pop-up prom dress giveaway at Dignity Health Sports Park in the American Express Stadium Club on Friday, Feb. 8 at 3 p.m. PT.

 

The Southbay Pavilion’s Sephora and JCPenny Hair Salon will also be present to provide beauty tips to all attendees.

 

This pop up event will provide every young lady the opportunity of owning their own prom dress along with the fairytale experience to ensure these young ladies feel beautiful, regardless of their families’ socioeconomic status.

 

Our goal is to inspire, enlighten, and mentor young ladies to know their value and empower them with the memories, confidence and resources to achieve personal success for prom night and beyond. 

 

Volunteers will be eager and ready to assist in selecting the perfect gown to fit each young lady’s personality, frame and style. When the dress is found, the young ladies will step into a mirrored booth for a photoshoot to claim YES! THAT’S MY DRESS. With hundreds of gowns donated by Macy’s, Adrianna Papell, BCBGeneration, Betsey Johnson, Faviana, Terani Couture, Rachel Allan, Morilee Madeline Gardner and many more amazing designers, every girl is bound to show up to prom looking absolutely fabulous!

ABOUT BECCA’S CLOSET

Just over fifteen years ago, a compassionate South Florida high school freshman, Rebecca Kirtman, followed her dream and lived by the motto, “Little Things Can Make A Big Difference”. This energetic, intelligent cheerleader and honors student refused to judge others by what they had or did not have. Realizing just how important prom night was, Rebecca set out to launch a dress drive to provide prom dresses and accessories to high school girls who would not have otherwise been able to be a part of one of the first major experiences of their life. All by herself, Rebecca collected over 250 formal dresses and shared these gowns with hundreds of girls across South Florida that didn’t have the financial means, all so they too could make memories at their prom. Just as her dream was taking flight, Becca lost her life in a tragic auto accident on August 20, 2003. To continue her legacy, Jay and Pam Kirtman, her amazing parents, decided that Becca’s legacy must live on. Now fifteen years later, “Becca’s Closet” has expanded and taken shape with chapters established throughout the country to provide hundreds of gorgeous gowns to deserving girls on their special day. In addition to the dresses, Becca’s Closet continues to raise funds to award post-secondary educational scholarships- recognizing the exemplary efforts of young men and women nationwide who demonstrate Becca’s spirit of generosity in their own communities.
