A newly formed group has big plans for Sequoyah County girls heading to prom!
“Cinderella For Prom” is designed to give girls a prom experience they will never forget. In March, organizers have planned a shopping day where participants can come into a boutique-style space and select gently worn dresses, shoes and the rest of their outfits for the big day.
Then at another event planned for April, the girls will find their prom outfits waiting for them as they get the whole prom experience, including hair, makeup, nails and photos. The photos will be put on thumb drives for each girl to keep.
Organizer Dawn Little said Friday that the group hasn’t yet determined exact dates or locations for the event, but “Cinderella For Prom” is accepting donations of dresses, shoes, accessories, hair and makeup products, as well as thumb drives.
Anyone is eligible to participate, Little said. She said the focus is on Sequoyah County girls, “but I won’t turn anyone away.”
The group’s purpose is to help girls who otherwise couldn’t afford the perfect prom experience, as well as to empower the young women and offer them that sisterly bond with one another, Little said.
The group’s services are free and some talented volunteers have signed on that will not disappoint, Little said. The only items girls are asked to return are the dresses.
If you would like to make a donation or volunteer your services, contact Little at (918) 316-0740 or on Facebook.
