Do you know any teenage girls dying to go to prom, but for whom financial distress has made it an impossibility? Schools offer discounted, even free prom tickets to students whose families cannot afford them, but as any fairy tale lover knows, you can’t go to the ball in street clothes. So the Bay Area’s Princess Project is playing fairy godmother again. Girls can come to their Oakland site on March 21 and San Francisco on March 28, and receive an absolutely free, taffeta dream of a dress. Because every girl deserves to be a princess at least for one night.
(And if you’re still hanging onto a gorgeous prom dress, 2002 vintage or later, that you’d like to donate, check the Princess Project web site next January for donation information.)
