HAMBURG, NY - There's a special event going on this weekend to help make sure anyone who needs a dress for prom night can get one.
Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon and Urban Valet Dry Cleaners are giving away free prom dresses.
They collected the gowns earlier this year from families across the region and Urban Valet donating their dry cleaning services. Now any high school-aged girl can pick one up at the Performing Arts Dance Academy in Hamburg.
"The cost of prom nowadays is expensive. It's ridiculous," said Dixon. "Just to be able to give these girls the opportunity to pick up a dress free of charge -- it helps ease the pressure they might feel when trying to figure out how they will pay for everything."
A limited number of shoes and jewelry is also available.
