LAS VEGAS – Project 150’s Las Vegas Prom Closet returns Saturday, March 5 for high school student planning to attend their school’s prom, after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic.
Local high school students have the opportunity to receive fashionable prom outfits, for free. Teens can choose from a selection of thousands of gently used dresses, tuxes, suits, and accessories.
“We are excited to bring back the Las Vegas Prom Closet this year, we have missed hosting this event the past two years and even though it will be on a much smaller scale, we are looking forward to seeing all the student’s happy faces,” stated Kelli Kristo, Project 150 executive director. “We know how expensive it can be for families to buy formal attire, but we want high school students to look and feel their best and enjoy making memories at their fabulous prom.”
This year’s prom closet will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 505 E. Capovilla, Suite 101, Las Vegas, Nevada 89119. Students must register in advance online for an appointment time. Limited spots are available for the event.

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, founded in December 2011 by local businessmen Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur. The two heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas who were in need of support over the Christmas break. Since that time, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 5,900 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 75 schools in Southern Nevada. Project 150 provides high school students with immediate access to food, clothing, school supplies, and offers college scholarships and life skill courses so they can remain in school, graduate and build successful futures.
