On March 24, moms got the night off at Arlington’s first annual Mom Prom, an evening of music, food and massages at Clarendon Ballroom that served as a fundraiser for the Greater DC Diaper Bank and Second Story for Young Mothers, a nonprofit providing residential and support services to minors who are pregnant or parenting. “Women give so much of themselves to other people,” says co-organizer Jessica Winesett (seen here crowning prom queen Melanie McCleery). “We wanted to create an event where they could have a great time, let loose and feel pampered.”
