A group of high school seniors from East Los Angeles will have the prom of their dreams, all thanks to a local foundation that helps students succeed.

The students from Lincoln and Wilson high schools picked out dresses, shoes and accessories on Saturday for the biggest dance of the year.

The I Have a Dream Foundation collected the donated prom attire, after learning about the students' struggles to pay for the costly event.

Student Wendy Perez said she found a beautiful dress for prom, as well as a few other items she could use for job interviews.

The students say they're very thankful for the donations.

The foundation works with students in impoverished communities, helping them get a good education and a better life.
