Project Prom: Dress Selection

project prom

Set-up: April 2 | 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Dress Selection: April 3 and 4 | 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Once again, Temple Emanu-El will help more than 250 low-income New York City high school seniors to shine at their spring proms. In partnership with Park Avenue Synagogue, we will provide a “boutique” shopping experience, aimed at providing these young women with free prom ensembles.

One of the most important goals of this event is to enable the girls to shop, along with volunteer “personal shoppers,” so that they may experience the excitement of getting ready for the prom and celebrate their achievements.

There are three easy ways for you to participate:

  • We are accepting donations of NEW or gently used, youthful-looking spring/summer formal dresses. Please make sure dresses are clean and in good condition. We are also in need of evening bags and NEW sealed cosmetics. Please drop off donations to Temple Emanu-El’s 65th Street lobby. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept used shoes at this time.
  • Help set up on Tuesday, April 2 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
  • Assist girls with dress selections on Wednesday, April 3 and Thursday, April 4 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
    To get involved, please email tikkunolam@emanuelnyc.org and include your name, contact information, and temple membership status.
