THE BRONX - Nearly 100 lucky Bronx girls have been granted the prom of their dreams.

The Fairy Godmother Initiative hosted a prom dress boutique for the first time in New York, offering high shcoolers a chance to dress their best for free.

The organization only asks that the participating girls pay it forward. They say they want the teenagers to know that there's a bigger purpose than just a free dress.

The event was held at the Bronx Neon on East 161st Street.
