HISD Board President Wanda Adams, along with Carla Lane and This Woman’s Work recently hosted Project Prom Dress Drive, an initiative to obtain 100 prom dresses to give to 100 homeless girls so they can attend their proms. The event’s goal was surpassed as over 200 dresses were collected well before the event, coordinated by Dorita Hatchett, concluded. Heavy-hitters from Houston’s business, education, social and political communities came out in force to the Gite Gallery to support this worthy cause. Those in attendance included Donna Blackshear Reynolds, Vernita Harris, Sharon Murphy, Jacqueline Potter, Tabitha Davis, Mary Garrett, Karen Hauser, Carla Blair, Oni Blair, Frederick Goodall, Ebony Lyons, Carla Brown, Naomi Hardy and Shirley Brooks among others.
