"Princess for a Day" event adds to prom experience

Posted:

Picking out that perfect dress, it's an important part of the prom experience. However, some high school students can't afford to get one.

Ziker Cleaners wants to help. On Saturday, it's hosting the annual "Princess for a Night" event in downtown South Bend. Anyone who needs a dress can come to the Century Center between 8am and noon.

The company will be handing out new and gently-used dresses, donated by the community.

"This is a good way for these girls who - you know - not necessarily, can't get a job because they're in school," said Retail Store Director Jennifer Probst. "Or they play sports while they're in school, and they just don't have time for all that. And their parents can't afford to pay for a $200 prom dress. This is probably the best way for them to get one."

Again, anyone who needs a dress can come out. You just need to present your student ID.
