In 2001, Rebecca Kirtman was a freshman at Nova High School in Davie and decided to start a dress collection.
Not for herself, but to donate free prom dresses to girls who couldn’t afford one.
After placing signs around school and writing letters to dress manufacturers, Rebecca had collected more than 250 dresses that she gave away to girls in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Two years later, 16-year-old Rebecca was killed in a car accident. Keeping their daughter’s legacy alive, Pam and Jay Kirtman founded Becca’s Closet in 2003.
