Prom season is here! Luckily for 10 selected young men, whose prom is on May 27th, the whole prom preparation process just got a whole lot easier, as they were winners of a Prom Tux Giveaway sponsored by media personality Trey White of WGCI. The former True Star instructor is making sure that these 10 seniors (selected from 200 submissions) will receive a tuxedo from, thanks to Formally Modern Tuxedo. They’ll also get their teeth cleaned and a manicure along with a boutonniere and corsage. On top of all that, their haircuts will be taken care of too.
White has made it a part of his personal mission to give back to Chicago’s youth. “I think its important to empower the youth. God didn’t give me this platform for no reason. I just feel like its important for young men to see someone like me from the same neighborhood as them give back. I believe I wouldn’t be where I am today without that extra push so the goal is to let them see me helping and motivate them so years later, when they become my age, they will do the same thing. … These young men have worked hard and are deserving of this!”
