Lucky girls from all over the Capital City got their pick of prom dresses today without having to pay a dime. Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle hosted her second annual Prom Dress Giveaway today, boasting more than 500 dresses to choose from.

All of the dresses are either brand new or gently worn. Marcelle teamed up with several other councilwomen and the New Orlean Hornets to make sure girls in the area had a chance to get the dress of her dreams.

The event also provided free make-up consulting and hairstyle tips for the big night.

And if you missed out on today's event, not to worry. The dresses will be available to pick up until Thursday. To set up a time to look at the dresses, call 389-3804.
