Prom season is just around the corner and area high school girls are in search of the perfect dress.

The Ashland Salvation Army Kroc Center hosted its 3rd Annual "The Princess's Closet" Thursday to help high school girls in Ashland County prepare for the big day!

The young ladies who attended the event at the Kroc Center enjoyed an evening of pre-prom pampering and glamour.
 

Kroc Center youth ministries director Melanie Miller said the girls were able to choose from more than 400 dresses at no costs.
 

The new and gently used dresses were collected to help offset the costs for the girls to attend prom.

 The event consisted of two sessions a private invitation only session and a public session.

"Girls from area schools in Ashland County were registered for the session. I worked with school liaisons to help choose girls that really are in need of a prom dress," Miller said.

The second session was open to the public. Dresses were available for a donation to benefit the Salvation Army.

The girls participated in hair and makeup sessions, they received free manicures, pedicures, accessories to match their dresses and a free Bible.

 Miller said the goal of the event is to show the girls they are a princess, they do have priceless value and they are all special to God.
