Donate Your Gently Used Dresses and Accessories to Project Princess – Help a Local Girl Have a Happy Ending!

Recently, my mom, who is a school bus driver in the area, helped one of her high school girls to purchase a prom dress. Otherwise, the girl wouldn’t have been able to attend this life milestone. I think my mom had fun reminiscing and picking out shoes, a wrap and jewelry with the girl and taking her to get her hair done. It was her chance to feel like a proud mama again.

I was so proud of my mom, I posted it to my Facebook and got a ton of response. This recent outpouring of generosity got me to thinking… how many other girls couldn’t go to prom this year because they couldn’t afford a dress?

On March 23, 2014 (time tbd) at the Browning Room in Central Library all local high-school age girls and their friends and parents are invited to attend Project Princess. Girls who want to attend their school’s 2014 prom but cannot afford a dress can receive a gently-used dress from Project Princess free-of-charge. Recipients must bring school ID or proof of studentship such as a report card or book fee bill.  

We are also seeking donations of new or gently used dresses and accessories along with sponsorships from local businesses. To donate your dress, shoes and accessories to Project Princess, drop off items to Townsquare Media at 117 SE 5th St. Evansville and we’ll do the rest. (3 blocks South of the Ford Center off Walnut). To become an in-kind sponsor or donate services for door prize giveaways or coupons such as salon appointments, dry cleaning or dresses, please contact Katelyn Buttram at 812.499.7867 or Ashley Sollars at 270.485.2873.

It’s hard to let go of something that reminds you of priceless memories but think of the memories another girl can make. After all, every girl deserves a happy ending!
