Irene's Prom Closet was created as a legacy to Irene Picota.


Irene' Prom Closet donates formal attire to high school girls with financial need who otherwise would not be able to attend their schools' dances, homecomings, and proms.


Our mission is to continue to honor her vision and dream of helping others. In Irene's memory, scholarships are awarded to deserving high school students to advance their education.


The Team:


President/Founder: Maria Vallarino (Irene's Mom)

Vice President: Belinda Cermola (Irene's Aunt)

Spiritual Overseer: Pastor Rene Picota (Irene's Brother)
