One couple will be dressed to the nines at their prom Saturday night, thanks to NBA basketball player Lance Stephenson.

Indiana high school student Megan Conlin, the winner of Stephenson’s “Ultimate Prom Experience,” will receive a free prom dress, shoes, a hair and makeup appointment and costume jewelry. Her date will receive a free tuxedo. Together they will split a free limo and steakhouse dinner, according to the Metropolitan School District website.

Conlin won the contest after writing an essay about why she deserves the experience, reports ABC local affiliate WRTV. Stephenson, 22, surprised Conlin and her date at school Friday morning, and Conlin even got to meet Stephenson's teammates on the Indiana Pacers.

Stephenson, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y. who has played in the NBA since 2010, teamed up with RaeLynn’s Boutique in Indianapolis to provide clothing for the couple. In a press release, RaeLynn’s owner said the pair “will look flawless on their prom night” and that Conlin picked out a royal mermaid gown for the event.
