YMCA of Springfield Hosts Prom It Forward for Local Teens
(Springfield, IL) February 1, 2019 - The YMCA of Springfield is hosting Prom It Forward on three different Sundays this year at the Downtown YMCA from 1-3 PM. All girls deserve to go to prom and take to the dance floor feeling beautiful, and the Y and our partners are helping each girl find the perfect dress, shoes, and accessories for their big night.
The Prom-it-Forward dates are February 24, March 24, and April 28. Prom It Forward is a wonderful way to help high school girls who may not be able to afford their dream dress purchase gently used formal dresses and accessories for their perfect prom night. In the spirit of pay it forward, girls are asked to make a donation to the Y's Strong Kids Scholarship Fund.
