It was a night to remember for more than 300 high school seniors thanks to state Sen. Kevin Parker’s (D–Flatbush) generosity.

The hip rep officiated over his 11th Annual Free Prom Dress Giveaway at the Samuel J. Tilden High School campus on May 5.

Along with sponsors including Macy’s, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.–Delta Rho Omega Chapter, Sen. Parker was able to offer high school seniors the ultimate pre-prom experience of a free dress, shoes, accessories, make-up tutorials, hair styling consultations, and additional giveaways from notable brands such as Shea Moisture, Karen’s Body Beautiful and radio station Hot 97.

“Every year my Annual Prom Drive is a huge success due to the overwhelming support from various local and national brands,” the senator said. “Prom is an exciting milestone for seniors and the students in our community need to know that their community supports them and is willing to come together to make sure they have the resources they need to fully celebrate their accomplish­ments.”

“Our chapter looks forward to partnering with Sen. Parker’s office every year for his Annual Prom Drive,” said Karen St. Hilaire, first veep of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.– Delta Rho Omega Chapter.

Additional sponsors included Shoe Dazzle, K2 Nail Paint, The Slim Heart Campaign, Celebrity Stylist Shatonia Amee & her glam squad, Nikki Phillip, Sesame Flyers International, Inc., Style & Grace Events and Opportunities For A Better Tomorrow (OBT) who supported by providing a selection of suit attire for young men attending proms.
