PROJECT 150 calls for Donated Formal Wear for Las Vegas Prom Closet Event
Project 150
, in partnership with, is calling for donations of new or gently used formal wear through March 4 to help homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students attend prom looking their best. 

“The Las Vegas Prom Closet makes it possible for students who couldn’t otherwise afford it to go to prom,” Project 150 Executive Director Meli Pulido said. “Our Las Vegas Prom Closet event, hosted by, provides a boutique-style experience for high school students to shop for free with their student ID.”

This year’s Las Vegas Prom Closet event will be from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, March 12 at the Plaza in Downtown Las Vegas.

“Zappos hosts the Prom Closet event to give the high school students in our community the chance to experience one of life’s most memorable moments — their prom,” said Shannon Rodriguez, countess of children’s apparel. “The best part of Prom Closet is seeing their faces light up with excitement when they see all of the beautiful dresses, tuxedos, shoes and accessories that are waiting for them. This is the reason we continue to host this event on our campus each year.”

Project 150 needs fashionable new or gently used prom or formal dresses, suits, shoes, ties, purses and accessories for both young men and women with a critical need for plus-size dresses, dress clothes for young men and jewelry. Other items needed for the free teen shopping day include, makeup, makeup brushes, hair products and hair irons.

Donations can be delivered now through March 4 to Project 150’s Brady Caipa Volunteer Center, 3600 N. Rancho Drive, or to any of the additional donation drop-off locations across the Las Vegas Valley. For information, visit or call (702) 721-7150.
