What better excuse for a New Year closet clean-out than promoting healthy life choices among teens?
Coming up on February 16th, the BuzzFree PROMises Dress & Tux Giveaway will do just that. Presented by The Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse of Dallas, the day will see hundreds of prom dresses, tuxes, and suits donated to area high school students in exchange for a “buzz free” prom night pledge.
“The BuzzFree mission is to reward and encourage healthy choices made by high school students in our community,” explains 2013 Event Chair Natalie Buxton. “We seek to prevent and reduce underage drinking, driving under the influence, and use of other drugs among youth in our community.”
Prior to the event, donations will be accepted through February 8th. Here’s how we can help:
Bring tuxedos, suits, and prom dresses in good condition to the Council’s office at 1349 Empire Central Drive, Suite 800, in Dallas. Pick-ups can also be arranged by calling 214-522-8600. The primary need is for tuxes and suits, as well as dresses in sizes 16 and up. All donations are tax deductible, and drop-offs are accepted during business hours.
Let’s hear it for a generous start to the year, helping teens look and feel their best on prom night!
