NEWS RELEASE

The Junior League of Indian River announces that Operation Prom will be held on Saturday, March 10 at the Boys and Girls Club of Vero Beach (1729 17th Avenue, Vero Beach, FL 32960) from 10:00am – 1:00pm. In its sixth year, the mission of Operation Prom, adopted by Junior League of Indian River, is to provide teens in our community with an opportunity to acquire stylish formal attire for their prom events at no cost. The vision is to have a dynamic, fun way for teens to shop for their formal wear while interacting with and receiving support from their community members. New and gently used dresses, gowns, suits, and tuxedos are collected and made available for teens to browse to the setting of fun, music and decor!

Gently used dresses, gowns, suits and tuxedos as well as accessories like handbags, jewelry and shoes can be donated at VNA Hidden Treasures Thrift Store at 656 21st St, Vero Beach and 11646 US HWY 1, Sebastian. Please label all donations as “Operation Prom.”

Junior League of Indian River Operation Prom Chair, Ashley Novander has been an Operation Prom committee member since she became a Provisional Member of the League. “Operation Prom is a great opportunity for new Provisional members to exemplify Junior League’s public service mission and create an event to benefit families in our community,” says Novander. “Prom is a very special event for teens and the Junior League is happy to help assist with picking out attire to make their memories even more special.”
