Salon POSH & Operation PROM Team up for Ladies Night on February 7th!



 Many high school students don’t think twice about going to their prom – and easily shell out the hundreds of dollars it takes to celebrate that traditional rite of passage in style. But for others, it’s just a dream that requires more money than their families have.

Noel D’Allacco, founder of Operation PROM, teamed up with Salon POSH owner, Diane Mammana, three years ago.  “Diane and her staff have volunteered at our dress giveaway events each year.  They help girls find the perfect Prom dress, and even donate their services to provide free hair and make-up to girls in need.”  On Tuesday, February 7th, Salon POSH is hosting its 1st  Annual “Ladies Night”, offering discounted services and showcasing a variety of other beauty based businesses.  The salon will collect Prom dresses all day long!  “It is an amazing organization, and I am so proud that my salon can give back to the community and encourage everyone to dig into their closets and donate a dress”, says owner, Diane Mammana.

The salon will collect dresses on Tuesday, February 7th from 12pm-9pm.  Everyone who donates a dress will receive a free raffle ticket entering them to win 2 VIP tickets to see the new ABC daytime talk show, “The Chew”, with celebrity chef Mario Batali.

Salon POSH is located at 516 West Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck, NY 10543.

Contact Diane Mammana  914-899-3333.

Ladies Night will be from 6pm-10pm and include:

57 Grand

Always a bridesmaid?  Well then donate your dresses!  That was the idea between our partnership with 57 Grand, a bridal salon in New York City.  Owners Saukok Tiampo & Carmen Ho contacted us a few years back with the idea of encouraging their clients to donate their bridesmaid dresses.  Since bridesmaid dresses make perfect Prom dresses, it was easy to pair up!

57 Grand offers a variety of gorgeous styles, colors and fabrics in their reasonably priced bridal collections.  After you purchase a dress from them, you can go online to download your dress donation form and ship that dress right to us – it’s that simple!  The company also participates in a huge dress drive each year, collecting the most dresses than any other retailer in New York City.        You can even shop with them online!  Be sure to check out www.57Grand.com

Operation PROM’s Featured Supporters 2011

This holiday season Operation PROM will feature a few outstanding businesses that have supported our organization throughout the year.  Because it’s about giving back all year long – and these companies sure know how to do it!

1.  Le Loft Salon & Spa, 355 Manville Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570                   (914) 769-0755

It was a no-brainer to team up with Le Loft Salon & Spa!  Owner, Francesca Vendittelli-McAndrew contacted us about hosting a Prom dress drive in her salon, because she thought it would be a great way to give back to students in Westchester County.  “Our clients and staff were thrilled that we were collecting dresses for Operation PROM,” said Francesca.  “They were so happy to donate their dresses  knowing that they would be giving young ladies in need a chance to go to Prom.”   In less than one week, nearly 100 dresses were donated – a huge success.  In fact, Le Loft collected more dresses than any other business north of White Plains.  The salon has also provided Operation PROM with several salon & spa gift certificates that we have auctioned at our fundraising events.

So, next time you see a little gray, or feel like pampering yourself with a mani-pedi, check out Le Loft Salon & Spa, a full service salon and spa offering the best in hair, skin and nail services.  And, be sure to visit www.HelpPROM.org for information on when Le Loft will host their 2012 Prom dress drive for Operation PROM.
