Making High School Prom Dreams Come True

"Any girls who otherwise wouldn't be able to go to prom because they don't have the resources or the money. They may be able to afford the dress, but they can't do the hair, nails, makeup, whatever. We're just trying to reach out to them and say hey, you can do this," said Jessica Thomerson, Belle's of the Ball organizer.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- Two Barren County women are coming together to help create a prom night to remember.

Jessica Thomerson and Shannon Heacock are collecting prom dresses and accessories for girls wanting to attend prom.

They have started a Facebook group called "Belle's of the Ball" and are taking requests for high school girls in need. They are seeking dresses of all sizes, makeup, purses, shoes and anything a girl would need for prom.

The organizers are assisting Barren County High School, Metcalf County High School, Glasgow High School.

"Any girls who otherwise wouldn't be able to go to prom because they don't have the resources or the money. They may be able to afford the dress, but they can't do the hair, nails, makeup, whatever. We're just trying to reach out to them and say hey, you can do this," said Jessica Thomerson, Belle's of the Ball organizer.

Thomerson and Heacock are still seeking volunteers to help with hair, nails and makeup the day of prom.
