The penultimate glam milestone in a girl’s life is finding the dress memorable enough to recall prom at a future granddaughters’ request. And not only did Mrs. LeBron James aka Savannah James hook up 50 lucky Akron, Ohio girls with pretty frocks, she loaned them her stylist for the second annual Prom Promise event (associated with LeBron James Family Foundation.) Stylist Alicia had a one-on-one consultation with each girl and gave a lecture on personal style and confidence.
Cleveland.com reported Savannah established the Prom Promise event to boost young girls self-esteem and give prom preparation to those in need. She released this statement:
I know how challenging life can be for young girls trying to find their way in high school, so this is a way for me to really connect with them during a special time in their lives and encourage them to embrace their beauty, knowledge and strength. LeBron and I are blessed to be in a position to give back to our hometown, and I feel a responsibility to help others comes with that. I believe strongly in empowering others, and, through this event, I hope to boost these girls’ self-esteem and give them confidence that they can be anything they want to be if they work hard and believe.
Not only will the lucky ladies go home with a new dress, but Savannah also threw in Beats By Dre Headphones and an I Promise souvenir wristbands modeled after what NBA superstar LeBron James wears. Savannah takes Prom Promise event to Miami in April. To donate gently used or brand new dresses to the event send them to LRMR Management Offices 3800 Embassy Parkway, Suite 360, Akron, Ohio, 44333.
