Monte with Personal Shopper and Girl

Monte Durham joins a Discovery employee and prom-ready girl before the runway show in 2012.

After a successful Say Yes to the Prom event in 2012, Discovery Communications has announced that, in conjunction with Magruder High School and KidsPeace, we will help local students Say Yes to the Prom again. On March 26, we will welcome 40 high school girls from the local community for an unforgettable day of beauty, fashion and fun.

Monte Durham of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta will again host the special day, ensuring each of the girls are prom-ready. Each girl will be matched with a Discovery employee, serving as her coach, personal shopper and style assistant throughout the day.

One Discovery Place will be transformed into prom central — with hair and beauty stations, alteration areas, shopping tables and, of course, a red-carpet runway. Girls will have the opportunity to choose from over 700 dresses and accessories donated by Discovery employees and Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT) members. After a makeover and additional “personal touches” from Monte, the girls will take center stage on the catwalk as the day’s true stars.

You can join in on the prom fun with us on Tuesday, March 26 by following @DiscoveryCommon Twitter and #SYTTP  on Twitter and Instagram!
