Pasco County high school students who thought they might have to pass on their Prom because of their budget can once again choose a free ensemble with help from the Cinderella Project.
The Cinderella Project of Pasco is in its 17th year of providing new and gently used prom dresses and accessories at no cost to young ladies with financial need. Girls from all Pasco, and surrounding county’s’ high schools can benefit from the Cinderella Project, according to head “fairy godmother” and organizer Julie Rockwell. “We have over one thousand beautiful dresses in all colors, styles and bling to choose from”.
The Cinderella Project accepts donations of new and gently used, contemporary prom-style dresses
and accessories (shoes, purses, costume jewelry) in excellent condition. Cash donations to the Cinderella Project are used to purchase brand new dresses and shoes when sizes are not available in the donated inventory.
Donations may be dropped off at the Raymond James office, 9040 Tryfon Blvd., Suite A-104, at the corner of Little Road and Trinity Boulevard in the Trinity Town Center, Fivay High School in Hudson and Gulf High School in New Port Richey.
Since 2003, the project has supplied dresses and accessories to well over a thousand Pasco County girls with financial need. This year, there are four locations – three Pasco County High Schools, and a weekend storefront – for the boutiques.
“Our goal is to try to insure no one misses their prom because of lack of funds”, said Rockwell. Students can try on and pick out their ensemble at the following locations and times:
March 26th through 28th at Gulf High School, 5355 School Rd. New Port Richey, FL 34652 from 2:30pm to 6:30pm each day.
March 30th from 9:00am to 4:00pm and March 31st from 12:00noon to 4:00pm at Marjorie’s Hope, 5228 SR 54, New Port Richey, FL 34652.
*Please look for signs posted at the entrances for directions to the boutiques.
