Warner Bros. Discovery Gives Students the Ultimate ‘Say Yes to the Prom’ Experience With Help From DIRECTV

Prom season is a very exciting and memorable occasion for high schools students across the country. But this fancy tradition is not always attainable financially for families on a budget. Working with Warner Bros. Discovery, DIRECTV helped create memorable experiences for 500 worthy students at the Los Angeles Say Yes to the Prom event in March.

The two-day event took place on the Warner Bros. Discovery lot in Burbank, Calif. with an appearance and custom styling by Monte Durham from TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta. The invited students were treated to the ultimate VIP experience – including in the DIRECTV VIP Lounge. The full prom shopping spree included being pampered, primped and styled. After finding their dream attire, they ate and played games in the DIRECTV VIP Lounge staffed by the company’s employee volunteers.

This charitable and educational initiative was created to offer mentorship to students while giving them the “confidence to shine at prom and beyond.”

This worthwhile program – inspired by TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress has the goal to help thousands of students find their perfect prom look. The experience included countless dresses, shoes, and accessories (from Macy’s) as well as fittings, tuxedo rentals (from Men’s Warehouse), hair and makeup consultations from professional stylists.
