Organization helps teens get ready for prom

LAWTON, OK (TNN) - Prom season is right around the corner and some area high school girls are now ready to go after Saturday’s prom dress giveaway.

Lawton Parks and Recreation partnered with Queenin 2gether, an organization that aims to empower, elevate, and educate girls. The Prom Dress Giveaway featured free formal dresses, shoes, and jewelry.

Carolynne Moore, founder of Queenin 2gether, said finding a dress can be expensive and stressful. She wanted to take the stress out and add some fun because every girl deserves to feel and look beautiful.

“I asked God how I could be a blessing and this is the vision he gave me," said Moore. "I’ve had this company for two years and didn’t know what to do with it, and this vision gave me that. So, I want to be the gap for these girls. I wanted to bring something that would help other parents because I know how it is. It’s kind of hard to do life and then make this an amazing night for your kids for prom, so I know how it is.”

There will be a part two of the prom giveaway festivities. They will be on the prom nights in Lawton for each high school: April 26-27 and May 3, where they will be doing the girls’ makeup and hair. This will take place at Springhill Suites.
