Teen's Legacy Lives On Through Free Prom Dresses: If you have a teenaged girl (or you were one, once) you know how important finding the perfect prom dress can be.  You also know that the perfect prom dress is almost never cheap.  That's where Becca's Closet comes in.  The national organization is named for 16-year-old Rebecca Kirtman, a Florida high schooler who passed away in an auto accident in 2003.  But before she passed, Becca had launched a dress drive at her school for girl who couldn't afford prom dresses.  Today, the organization created in her memory does the same thing, collecting and distributing prom dresses.  Becca's Closet Atlanta is located in Marietta, and appointments can be made for any girl who cannot afford to purchase a prom dress.
