*On Saturday, April 8, 2017, Jada Paul, wife of Los Angeles Clipper and nine time NBA All-Star Chris Paul, and the Chris Paul Family Foundation hosted their sixth annual Prom Dress Giveaway at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City.
One hundred and twenty five high school senior girls from various community organizations around Los Angeles attended the event. Those organizations included the Brotherhood Crusade, Watts-Willowbrook Boys & Girls Club, Compton School District, Woodcraft Rangers and the After-School All Stars.
“This is our sixth year doing the prom dress giveaway and it gets better every year,” stated Jada Paul. “It means a lot to our family to help make the prom a memorable evening for the girls. In addition to this event, we also host one in Winston Salem, North Carolina, our hometown.”
The event included a light breakfast buffet, runway fashion show with models from Natural Models LA and the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit, a braid bar sponsored by Keyes Automotive, and makeup instruction by The Glam Agency. The young ladies were able to select their prom dress, shoes, purses and jewelry all in an effort to make their prom night extra special.
