FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Students 7-12th grade received free prom dresses after attending the Fort Wayne Medical Society Alliance Community Health Fair.

Hundreds of volunteers, educators, and community organizations helped to get the girls ready for the special night while also promoting wellness.

"What money we do have, it's supposed to go to my college. I'm deciding between Southern Illinois University and Kent State University for the fashion design program,and yeah we just don't have a whole lot of money this year," 17 year old Amanda Grush said.

Dresses, shoes, jewelry, hair and make-up tutorials were all available on site at the Grand Wayne Center.
