Z96 Radio (WZNS), Santa Rosa Mall and One Wireless have set-up “The Z96 Prom Dress Store” in Santa Rosa Mall. 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.
A “Pretty In Pink Boutique” opening day will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 21, by appointment. Employees from Victoria’s Secret will assist the girls with their dress fittings and provide gift cards, make-up and fragrance samples as available.
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 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Santa Rosa Mall Office or at Z96 Radio, 225 Northwest Hollywood Blvd. in Fort Walton Beach,
This is the 10th year that Z96 has operated the “Z96 Prom Dress Store,” and last year 111 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.
