FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — For most teenage girls, buying a prom or formal dress is a right of passage- but for some families, it's a hefty expense. However, because of this year's "Love the Dress" event in Franklin 260 young girls went home with a dress of their choice this weekend.

More than 3,000 dresses were donated by community members, local stores, schools, and designers.

Girls could bring a formal dress to swap at the event, or purchase one for up to $20. Those struggling financially were given vouchers for a dress.

All proceeds go towards event costs and WayFM’s community fund.
