Z96 Radio (WZNS) and Tom Thumb are filling the Z96 Prom Dress Store. Dresses are provided free of charge to high school young ladies whose families may not have the financial means to purchase a dress for prom.
Girls are encouraged to contact the radio station or their high school guidance counselor for a referral to Z96. Any girls in need will be able to “shop by appointment” for a free dress at the Z96 Prom Dress Store, which will be located at Sandollar Jewelry, Accessories & Gifts, 323 Page Bacon Road, Suite #20 in Mary Esther.
Donations of new or almost new and in‑style dresses are currently being accepted, as well as purses, shoes or jewelry that are new or in very good condition. Donations can be dropped off at Sandollar Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., or at Z96 Radio located at 225 Northwest Hollywood Boulevard in Fort Walton Beach Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
This is the fourteenth year that Z96 has operated its Prom Dress Store, and last year over 115 young ladies received free dresses. A large number of dresses will be available, but we cannot guarantee that every girl will find a dress in her size or style.
Dixie Service Cleaners will provide dry cleaning services if necessary for any dress at a great discount.
For more information about the Prom Dress Campaign, happening March 1‑May 10, contact Z96 at 850‑243‑7676 during business hours.
