About 30 girls from 10 high school teams will be competing today at a prom fashion show at Walt Whitman Mall.
The Bloomingdale's event includes a DJ, cupcakes, and makeup and hair consultations, part of the mall's Prom Expo, which runs from 1 to 3 p.m. Bloomingdale's is also accepting donations of used party or prom dresses to be donated to PROUDgirls Team Copiague. The mail Prom Expo runs from 1pm to 3pm.; the fashion show from 2-5 p.m.
On Sunday, students from Long Island High School for the Arts will sing hip hop dance and musical theater numbers, from 1 to 3 p.m.
Some of the students' artwork will also be on display. Students are from both Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Long Island Cares is having a food drive from 9 a.m to 2 p.m. April 16 during the mall's 12th anual Easter Egg Hunt. Donations of non-perishable items are welcome.
Children from 3 to 9 are invited to join the hunt and search the mall for some 1,500 multi-colored eggs, filled with candy and toys, hidden in the mall's common area. After the hunt participants can meet the Easter Bunny, and enjoy face painting, balloon creations, and temporary tattoos.
Tickets are available for purchase beginning April 1 at Simon Guest Services - the event is limited to the first 150 children.
The cost is $5 per child, with all proceeds benefiting the Simon Youth Foundation.
Registration for the hunt starts at 8:30 a.m. and the event begins promptly at 9.
