Pre-Prom Prep Party 2018
As a part of the Garden of Dreams Prom experience, 100 teens participated in a Pre-Prom Prep Party. This was a chance for the teens to mix and mingle before the actual prom, on May 8th. The event provided different workshops to help them getting ready for their “Big Easy, Big Dreams” prom. Teens were given Ralph Lauren ties, and lessons on how to tie and style them by Arda Ocal and Knicks alumni, Larry Johnson. The teens also had the opportunity to participate in a confidence building workshop led by Garden of Dreams Prom Chairwoman Damaris Lewis. This workshop focused on inner beauty and self-confidence. The prom attendees were also given the opportunity to pick out jewelry donated by Tuleste. Teens were also participated in hair and makeup consultations by the hair and make-up artists who would be helping them up on the day of prom. At the end of the event, everyone took to the runway to practice their red carpet walk for the big day!
