Operation PROM is a national non-profit organization that has been making dreams come true since 2005 by providing dresses, tuxedos and more to students who otherwise could not afford them. Their help has allowed these deserving students to be part of the high school rite of passage: Prom.

“Prom is one of the most memorable nights of your senior year in high school,” says Armand Perez, Chapter Director of the new Operation PROM Connecticut. “We want to ensure that every student can have that memory regardless of their family’s financial status,” says Perez. Perez is the Founder and President of DigiMed Group, marketing and advertising company in Darien. He and his staff will oversee the Connecticut Chapter of Operation PROM.

“After nine Prom seasons, we are excited to finally have a chapter in our neighboring state,” says Noel D’Allacco, Founder & President of Operation PROM, where the headquarters are located in Westchester County, NY. Connecticut is now the ninth state in the U.S. to have a chapter of the organization.

Donations of dresses are needed for the Connecticut Chapter. Perez and his team are encouraging people to look through their closets and donate a dress. To donate a dress, donors can contact DigiMed Group by phone at 203.302.5707 or by email at media@digimedgroup.com. To learn more, visit www.digimedgroup.com/operationprom.

Students in need of a free Prom dress should check the eligibility requirements, which include that high schools seniors are passing all their classes. The online registration form is now available on their national website to qualifying students (www.operationprom.org/free-dresses.php). The dress giveaway event date and location will be announced later this month.
