Gown About Town: Lesley West Stages Her Prom-Dress Drive

The Pacer wife staged another productive year and event, giving away hundreds of prom dresses to IPS juniors and seniors.

The Pacers will soon hold court at Bankers Life Fieldhouse against the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, but today the Fieldhouse looked quite different. There was no intense match-up. Instead of sweaty bodies, trash talking, and competition, there were goodie bags with makeup, free lunch, and prom dresses galore.

As seen in our April issue, Lesley West—wife of Pacers star David West—brought her prom-dress drive and giveaway to the Fieldhouse for the event’s second year. The founder stayed the entire time, as she chatted, helped with dress decisions, and took photos with all the Indianapolis Public Schools girls who attended.

And she will let no one leave empty-handed: “Everybody is guaranteed to leave with a dress,” says West.
