Operation Prom was originally established in New York to help low-income, sick or disabled students attend their Proms by providing free Prom dresses and tuxedo rentals. It is now a national organization that helps thousands of girls around the country who demonstrate financial need and are in good academic standing. Noel D�Allacco, the founder and executive director of Operation Prom, started the not-for-profit after she began collecting bridesmaid dresses from clients and donating them to students from her high school.
TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)__ Washburn Rural High School held their prom at the Capitol Plaza Hotel Saturday evening.
Many beautiful dresses flooded the dance floor as couples danced to up beat music.
Attendees got their pictures taken so they could remember the night forever. Others cheered as their new Prom King and Queen were announced.
