The Learning Channel's "Say Yes to the Prom" initiative gave more than 50 students a chance to have their dream outfits for their upcoming prom.
The initiative provides underserved high school seniors with a private prom shopping day.
Students from Hempstead went shopping in the city to find their dream outfits. The students were welcomed with applause and given two hours to pick from thousands of options.
Altice USA, the parent company of News 12, and Discovery partnered with Macy's, Men's Wearhouse and Kendra Scott Jewelry to give the students a perfect look.
"Say Yes to the Dress" consultant Monte Durham got to help the students shop along with Altice employees.
"How exciting to hear them say yes to a dress or a tuxedo," says Durham. "They are so excited, it's great."
The students not only got to find the perfect outfit, but they also got to choose accessories and get their makeup done.

This was the ninth annual "Say Yes to the Prom," but the first for a Long Island school.
