WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — It's prom season for high schooler in South Florida, and many students and parents are starting to shop for the big day.

This weekend a youth group in west palm beach called 20 Pearls is helping other girls with the shopping process called Promtique that offers free dresses, shoes and accessories to students.

"Some girls dream of their wedding. I dreamed of prom, so for some people to not be able to go, because of a dress is really sad," Palm Beach Lakes High School Senior Shia Rozier said. "So, I'm glad we can offer Promtique to at least help some of those people out."

Promtique began 14 years ago.

Organizers collect gently used or new dresses and accessories and then they give it away for free.

This year's event is happening Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. at the Riviera Beach Marina Event Center.
