Free prom dress event scheduled for next week


South Brunswick High School’s Viking Closet will hold its sixth annual Free Prom Dress Event from 2:45-5 p.m. Feb. 21-23 at the school, 750 Ridge Road, in the Monmouth Junction section of South Brunswick.

Feb. 21 is for SBHS students only, all grades. No appointment is needed. SBHS students can also shop during their lunch hours on Feb. 24, 27 and 28.

Feb. 22 and 23 are open to juniors and seniors from other schools as well, though appointments are necessary by emailing

This year, girls will be able to take home two dresses as there will be no dressing rooms available. There is no fee for any dress or accessories, which have been donated by members of the community.

Students will also be able to enter a free raffle for prom tickets, manicures, pedicures, makeup, hair and gift certificates for tuxedo rentals on Feb. 21 and 22 in the alcove between the blue and red cafeterias.

Any businesses or community members that would like to contribute to this event can contact Jennifer Webb at or send checks/gift cards to SBHS Viking Closet, 750 Ridge Road, Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852. Checks should be made out to South Brunswick High School and write “Viking Closet prom event” on the memo line.
