Can you imagine being a teenage girl, dreaming about attending her Junior or Senior Prom, only to realize that the cost of a dress is out of reach?

That’s where the Cinderella Dreams Project comes in. The Midlothian Junior Woman’s Club and Melissa Chase with Cox Radio, along with the YMCA of Greater Richmond, Lex’s of Carytown, The Wilton Companies, and Logo Solutions have all joined together to ensure that no young woman is denied her chance to experience a quintessential event of adolescence – attending Prom.
With donations from the community, the project provides prom dresses and accessories to area high school girls, lifting the financial burden of parents and teens on a tight budget.
