The City of Santa Monica's First Prom Dress/Tux Swap

March 16, 2016 10:23 AM

From March 14 through April 22, all Santa Monica Public Library branches will collect used prom dresses and tuxedos for the City’s first "Prom Dress/Tux Swap" event. The Swap is a way to exchange last year’s dress or tux for another dress or tux, for nothing more than a trip to your local library.  A coupon will be given to those that drop off a dress or tux.

Coupons will be redeemable on Saturday, April 30 from 2 – 5 p.m. at Marine Park, 1406 Marine Park.  The Prom Swap will be held as part of the Westside Repair Café. Bring the Prom Dress/Tux Swap coupon to event to begin shopping for a “new” gently used dress or tux.  The City has already received a donation of new and used dresses from Culver Closet.  For information about the event, visit or call 310.458.2223.
