CINDERELLA DREAMS 2012 – MAKING GIRLS’ DREAMS COME TRUE
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 Women’s Club, Hot 100.9 and 103.7 The River, Puritan Cleaners, and the YMCA of Greater Richmond are joining forces to ensure that no young woman is denied her chance to experience a quintessential event of adolescence – attending her Prom. The Cinderella Dreams Project aims to help shoulder the financial burden of attending this formal event by providing gowns and accessories for free to any girl who, like Cinderella, needs help obtaining a gown for the ball.
The Cinderella Dreams Prom Dress Project is held each spring. During the late winter and early spring, the club collects prom dresses, jewelry, shoes, makeup and other prom-related accessories that are donated at Richmond-area YMCA branches and Puritan Cleaners. A ‘shopping’ event is then held, where girls can shop for and select a dress and accessories for free. Since 2006, Cinderella Dreams Project has partnered with local businesses to help hundreds of girls fulfill their prom dreams at no cost to them!
The Cinderella Dreams Project is now accepting donations of new and gently used gowns in current styles for 2012.

On March 23th, 24th and 31st 2012, girls can come and select a gown for free. If you or your business would like to help with any aspect of the project, contact the 2012 Cinderella Dreams Project Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org. We, and the girls, thank you for your support!
