The Hornets will host their annual Prom Dress Giveaway presented by NOLA Lending Group on Saturday, April 9 at the Dryades YMCA (2220 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.) Appointment times from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. are booked, but young ladies in the 11th and 12th grades can attend the open call giveaway from 1-3 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.

We are honored to be able to provide local young ladies with elegant gowns for their special evening, and we appreciate the partnership with NOLA Lending Group to help enhance this opportunity, said Hornets President Hugh Weber. This is a great way that the Hornets can show that theyre IN for the city of New Orleans and its younger residents by providing something as simple as a gorgeous dress.

To be eligible to receive a beautiful gown, young ladies MUST be a junior or senior in high school, present a valid school ID or class schedule signed by principal and be accompanied by a parent or adult. Each girl will be able to select one dress and will have a maximum of 15 minutes to browse and try on.

NOLA Lending Group is committed to giving back and is excited to be IN with the Hornets and provide such a memorable opportunity for young girls in our community, said NOLA Lending Group Owner/Managing Partner Paul Spansel. Both organizations share the same passion for this community, and we are proud to be a part of such a great event.

There will be more than 400 new, contemporary prom dresses to choose from including brands like BCBG, Cache and dresses donated by Pearls Place.

In addition to a new prom dress, each young lady will be given free movie screening passes to see Disneys PROM movie courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures.
