Texoma Girls Were The "Belle of the Ball"

Many girls in Texoma had the opportunity on Saturday to be the "Belle of the Ball". 

"Belle of the Ball" is a Prom Dress Drive that helps serve girls in the community who are need of a prom dress, but can't afford one. 

Over 500 hundred were donated in many different styles, colors and sizes. 

"It feels very good.  I really enjoy giving back to the community, so it feels really good to see how happy people are," said Event Manager, Serena Ramirez. 

Ramirez was a Newschannel 6 Community Service Champion in 2014 for her work with "Belle of the Ball". 

Wichita Falls' Hirschi High School donated the most dresses, so students will receive a free prom. 

If you missed "Belle of the Ball" on Saturday, there will be another opportunity on Sunday, April 12th. 

For more information call, 940-692-8300.
