April 16th is steadily approaching, and that means buying a prom dress is a priority. Dallas Bay Baptist Church is hosting their 4th Annual Prom Dress Giveaway on March 5th, between 10 AM- 1 PM. They are offering over 400 dresses on a first come, first served basis for free.

“The only reason some girls are not going to prom is because they can not afford a dress,” explained Ms. Tina Cotreau, who is the prom committee sponsor.

The congregation agrees wholeheartedly. Mrs. Stacy Groover, a member of Dallas Bay, is passionate about heading the event.

“I feel like this is one way God reaches out to our youth. I am honored he would choose me to be a part of it. Every girl, no matter what age they are, will remember their prom,” Groover bubbled.

Every girl that attends will get a personal hostess that will help them find dresses to try on. There will also be refreshments provided, as well as station to paint nails. Kiss FM will DJ the event.

“We have been blessed as a church. We are striving to honor God by loving every girl and her family that comes. We want it to make it as special as possible for them,” Groover shared.

Last year, almost 200 girls attended the event from all over the county. The congregation is hoping to distribute the 500 dresses that have been donated this year.

Dallas Bay Baptist Church is located at 8305 Daisy Dallas Rd in Hixon, TN. Call 423-842-9299 (ex. 312) for more information.
