Prom Dress Drive 2020

Our Prom Dress Drive 2020 is officially kicking off Friday, January 17, 2020.

Karissa Winstead, REALTOR® and The Salt Oasis Kingsport have teamed up to host a Prom Dress Drive.

To the right, you will find a picture of me at my senior prom in 2007. I made so many memories that night and I want other girls to be able to attend their prom just like I was able to.

As you start to think about spring cleaning, please keep a lookout for any new or slightly used prom dresses or bridesmaid dresses that you may have lying around that don’t need anymore.

Beginning January 17 through April 15 we will be accepting donations of the following: any prom or bridesmaid dresses, prom shoes or accessories (purses, jewelry, etc). If you're like me, you hang onto things for a long time. This is the perfect opportunity to clear out some space in your closet and it's for a good cause. When you've collected the items you would like to donate to our Prom Dress Drive 2020 you can bring them to our drop off locations.

The drop off locations are: RE/MAX Checkmate:

904 Sunset Drive, Suite 1 Johnson City, TN or The Salt Oasis Kingsport: 4016 Fort Henry Drive, Kingsport, TN.

Then, on April 17 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. we will be donating collected items to girls in the Tri-Cities (any high school) who need them. We want to give girls a chance to attend prom who otherwise wouldn’t be able to - because let’s face it, it can be expensive.

When students are old enough to go to prom, they are not only having to pay for that big event - they are also beginning to buy cars, paying for graduation - which includes cap and gown, pictures, parties, invitations and so much more. Then, the really big expense comes just a couple of months later if they decide to move away and go to college.

We are hoping to ease the burden of having to dish out hundreds of dollars on prom attire.

On the night of our distribution, girls will be able to come, try on the dresses, and leave with a dress free of charge. This will take place at the Salt Oasis. We will move to a bigger location however, if needed. All we ask is that girls bring their school I.D. with them when they come to pick out a dress.

Help us spread the word so we can collect as many dresses as possible during our Prom Dress Drive 2020! If you have any questions, feel free to call Karissa Winstead at 423-963-0091 or email karissawinstead@gmail.com.
