2019 Project Prom Ribbon Cutting & Grand Opening
Saturday, February 23, 2019

Polk County, FL – It’s almost Prom Time but for some teens the expense of this social event could make attending prom out of reach. InnerAct Alliance and youth coalition, UthMpact, are proud to present the 7th year of the Project Prom effort to provide formal wear and accessories to deserving high school students and educate youth and parents in our community about the risky behaviors that may occur during prom and graduation time. Students with a Polk County School ID can sign a Project Prom Pledge to celebrate being drug-free and receive dresses and suits for FREE!

A special Project Prom Store Ribbon Cutting will be held this Saturday, February 23, 2019, at 9:30 am, at Lakeland Square Mall, 3800 U.S. 98 North, in Lakeland (in the old Sears wing). The first of four 2019 Student Shopping Days for Project Prom will begin immediately after when the doors open at 10:00 am. Additional shopping days are scheduled for Saturday, March 9, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Saturdays March 23 and April 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 pm., at the Project Prom store.

Community members are also asked to support this effort by donating gently used dresses, shoes, men’s suits, ties, and other accessories. Formal wear donations may be dropped off on the shopping dates at the Project Prom Store or at the InnerAct Alliance office on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

UthMpact’s goal is promote a fun and safe Prom Night. For more information, please contact Samantha Barwig, UthMpact Coordinator, at (863) 802-0777.
