Operation Prom Dress Ministry

Dear OPD Participants and Volunteers,
 
We are so sad to announce that due to the governor’s decision for schools to be closed for three weeks, as well as mass gatherings banned, we will be canceling Operation Prom Dress on March 21. While we have been so excited to serve so many beautiful young women, everyone’s health is our number one priority. We will reassess after schools reopen to determine if we might be able to offer a version of this later this spring. God’s blessings to you during this time. Stay well and wash your hands!
 
Please direct any questions to the Operation Prom Dress email account at opd@epiphanydayton.org.
 
Peace and blessings,
The Operation Prom Dress Leadership Team

Operation Prom Dress provides gowns and accessories to high school students. All young ladies looking forward to attending a prom are welcome to attend. At Epiphany, it is more than just making prom dreams come true. We are dedicated to promoting positive self-image and confidence in teen girls based on their identity in Christ and inner beauty.
 
Held in the spring (typically in March) of each year at our Far Hills Campus, the girls are treated to a day of beauty and grace. After a light breakfast, each girl has the opportunity to select a prom dress and have her hair and make-up done by professionals who are donating their time and services. The girls will finish the day with a mini-photo shoot, lunch, prayer, and presentation of a Bible. 
 
If you are unable to make it to the event, we may have some dresses available one additional day, if requested and if volunteers are able to accommodate.
