“Polished Gentlemen: A Workshop on Etiquette for Boys”

We are excited to share information about an upcoming event that we are organizing – the Polished Gentlemen Prom Closet. This initiative aims to provide young men in our community with the opportunity to attend their high school prom with confidence and pride, regardless of financial constraints.

The Polished Gentlemen Prom Closet will be a one-day event where eligible high school students can access gently used and donated formal wear, including suits, dress shirts, ties, and accessories. We believe that every young man deserves the chance to experience this significant milestone without the burden of financial limitations.

Donations needed:

Belts, Bow ties / Ties, Cufflinks, Cummerbunds, Dress Shirts, Dress Socks , Dress Pants, Handkerchief, Hats, Shoes, Suits, Suspenders, Toiletries, Tuxedos, Underwear, and Undershirts.
