New York, New York (PRWEB) March 20, 2017
PromGirl, the largest nationwide online retailer of prom and special occasion dresses, and PromGuy, the leader in online men’s formalwear rental, are gearing up to celebrate the second official year of National Prom Day on March 31st. This day was created to honor friendship, cherish memories, celebrate history, and enjoy the fun and excitement this milestone event brings.
For PromGirl and PromGuy, the word PROM holds a much deeper meaning than a high school dance. They’ve redefined PROM to mean: Powerful. Real. One. More, providing an outlet for teens to express their unique personalities through fashion and create a community that fosters confidence, empowerment, and individuality. They are proud to support Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), the nation’s leading organization that empowers students to become active leaders in peer-to-peer education within their community.
“The launch of this official holiday last year was a landmark event. We are excited to celebrate our second year and fully support the combined missions of PromGirl, PromGuy and SADD. Our goal is to create a safer community, where teens feel confident in their individuality, and make as big of a positive impact as we can,” David Wilkenfeld, CEO of PromGirl.
To celebrate National Prom Day and everything it stands for, PromGirl and PromGuy encourage all generations to share prom photos from year’s past on social media using the hashtag #NationalPromDay with the tag @promgirlxo and @promguytux. Let’s re-live history with a Flashback Friday by sharing some of the most treasured memories in each of our lives and embrace this special occasion that continues to hold so much tradition. If prom photos are not available, we encourage sharing any image that celebrates confidence and tagging friends who have empowered with confidence.
“This is a special time when all generations can truly reflect on how Prom has changed over time, while staying true to the many traditions that have remained the same. Let’s believe in what PROM means, and stand together, supporting and empowering teens to be the best they can be. Together, we can make history,” Peter Abruzzo, CEO of PromGuy.
To help support SADD, the goal for 2017 is to reach $40,000 in donations. PromGirl and PromGuy will donate a portion of all sales generated on National Prom Day for every dress purchased on promgirl.com and tux rented on promguy.com. They are also aligning with strategic partners to make direct donations and encouraging people from around the globe to donate to SADD though NationalPromDay.org.
