HATTIESBURG, MS -

A Perry County teen said her prom night is a dream come true.

Last week, WDAM reported about Perry Central High School student Angel Woods, who lost everything in a recent flood. 

However, Woods was able to arrive to her prom dinner in style because she won a free prom dress, jewelry and shoes from the store "Occasions." She also enjoyed  a free meal with her date Chris Brownlee at The Purple Parrot. 

“I wanted to make her happy and I thought prom would be the perfect time,” Brownlee said.

Woods said she is excited to celebrate this special night with her date and friends.

“It means a lot to people in high school because it’s their last couple of years before they go off into their life,” Woods said.

Woods said she wants to thank everyone who made this a special night for her.
