ASYMCA Camp Pendleton Serves Hundreds of Military Spouses at Annual Ball Gown Giveaway

On Friday, September 21st, Armed Services YMCA Camp Pendleton hosted its 2018 Ball Gown Giveaway! The giveaway allows military spouses to choose a dress, shoes and accessories to wear to upcoming Marine Corps and Navy balls. All dresses are donated by community members and area businesses. The event also provides suits, shoes and accessories for male spouses.15 years ago, the ASYMCA began "Operation Ballgown Giveaway" as a way for community members to assist young military spouses who might not be able to afford a gown.

This year, ASYMCA Camp Pendleton staff gave out a total of 863 ball gowns. Along with a gown, spouses and active duty service members also received a certificate for cleaning/altering, shoes, handbags and jewelry. See event photos below.
