MEREDITH — High school-aged girls will be able to pick a free prom dress at Gowns for Girls being held by the Faith, Hope and Love Foundation on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Meredith Bay Colony Club, 21 Upper Ladd Hill Road.
Light refreshments will be served and the day will kick off with an inspirational talk by co-founder of Faith, Hope and Love, Jessica Dutille and Laura Brusseau.
Girls will also be able to get hair and makeup tips for promn night, pick out a prom dress and accessories with one of the personal shopper volunteers on hand.
This is Faith, Hope and Love's seventh year for the event, which brings girls from all over New Hampshire. To date the foundation has given out more than 500 dresses and given out over $18,000 in grants for enrichment and survival funds.
