Beacon Journal staff report
Savannah James — Akron native and wife of NBA All-Star LeBron James — is in her second season, along with the LeBron James Family Foundation, of her I Promise Makeover, providing new prom dresses, beauty makeovers and encouragement Tuesday to nearly 50 girls from Akron high schools.
The event was about empowering and inspiring the young women, and assisting those who may not have the means to attend prom. In addition to the dresses, James and company also provided each of the girls with Beats by Dre headphones and special commemorative pink I Promise wristbands, modeled after the ones worn by LeBron James, students and fans across the country. The bands symbolize a personal commitment to creating positive change.
Savannah James will host a similar event next month for girls in Miami.
