Thousands of high school students will have an opportunity to select a free prom dress this year courtesy of The Glass Slipper Project, Prom Goes Green and clothing recycler USAgain. Since 1999, Glass Slipper Project has helped more than 20,000 young women attend their proms in style!
The dresses, jewelry and accessories are distributed at “boutiques” each prom season, where each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer “personal shopper” as she shops for the dress of her dreams. During the boutique, students will have the opportunity to select one of the many dresses available at no cost. Girls will also have a chance to choose from a selection of jewelry and accessories and receive free consultations for hair and makeup.
The boutiques are open to high school juniors and seniors in Chicagoland and other surrounding areas. Shoppers need only to present their valid student I.D. from any Chicago-area local high school – public or private, city or suburban – to take one home. Dresses are given away on a first come, first served basis.
Prom Goes Green benefits the environment by keeping dresses in use and defrays the high costs of prom for local high school girls. Prom Goes Green dress boutiques will take place at Price Elementary School at 4351 S. Drexel Blvd. in Chicago from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit the website at http://glassslipperproject.org/
