Hundreds of girls picked their perfect prom dress this weekend, and it didn't cost them a dime.

The giveaway took place at the Martin Luther King Community Center.

All the gowns were donated.

Councilor Denise Marcelle teamed up with the New Orleans Hornets, to help out girls who could not afford that special dress for their big night.

More than 1200 gowns were distributed for free.
