2nd Annual Prom Gown Giveaway Is Here!


Bronx, New York {January 18, 2017} — Prom day is one of the most memorable days of a young ladies adolescence. There are so many factors that lead up to creating an amazingly memorable day but the most important thing for any young lady is the gown she is wearing.

Reel Reality has the honor of providing several young ladies facing financial hardships the opportunity to receive a free prom dress! Our special day will be held at:

Eastchester Gardens Community Center
3016 Yates Ave
Bronx, NY 10475
May 6, 2017
10am – 2pm

This project started after founder, Meah Denee Barrington, had several gowns in her closet and wanted to do more than give them to a local thrift store. So she reminisced about her own prom day remembering how magical and memorable it was and wanted to give another young lady that experience.

Our goal this year is to raise 100 gowns and $1,000!

Last year, our goal was 50 dresses and we passed that goal raising 70 gowns instead. Along with meeting our goals we fully dressed every young lady that came to the event with a gown, shoes, and a purse! With the help of generous individuals and local businesses we created many memorable prom nights.

Donations will be collected  until May 2017.  

Free prom gowns are just the beginning Reel Reality will be raffling off accessories, along with providing hair and make up! We are focused on creating a total beauty experience and help create the most memorable prom night for these young ladies. Therefore we are in desperate need of help specifically through donations and sponsorships. If you are interested in sponsoring a young lady, donating a dress, or volunteering your services please contact Reel Reality.

To qualify to receive a free dress, girls must RSVP for the event. Application and qualification details are available here or by emailing reelrealityblog@gmail.com.
