Very cool! The FREE Homecoming Dress Giveaway in Ocean County, NJ

It’s prom season.

Every girl dreams of going to the ball and feeling like Cinderella.

This is the 14th annual prom dress pageant at the Ocean County Library. I remember when this was first brought up 14 years ago and they joined us on the radio. I thought it was just amazing and 14 years later it’s still going strong. I know how expensive prom night can be, it’s a tough time financially and it’s really going to help a lot of families.

The annual Ball Gown Contest is held throughout Ocean County at various branches of the Ocean County Library. It’s one of the library’s most loved things to do for the community. The Ocean County Library hopes to bring joy to young adults by helping them attend their senior or junior proms or spring ceremonies, regardless of their financial situation.
