Cinderella Project now seeking prom gowns, accessories

The 4th Annual Cinderella Project Prom Dress Drive is now underway and will continue through Feb. 28.

Organizers are looking for new and like-new gowns and accessories (shoes, jewelry, etc.) to replenish the racks for our 2014 Cinderella Boutique.

The Cinderella Project ensures that high school students in need are able to attend their prom, attired in style, for no cost.

Drop-off locations for donations include The Union, Cedar Ridge Salon, Mill Street Clothing, Launderland, Cappuccino Factory, The Magikal Florist, Robin's on the Avenue, The Red Chair and Gateway Personal Storage in Penn Valley.  

Organizers are a group of "fairy godmothers" who work from February through May.

In addition to the dress drive, they strive to create a "magical" Cinderella Boutique in a donated retail space.

This year's boutique location is still being sought.

Students are referred through counselors, social workers, pastors and friends using an online referral process at http://www.NCCinderellaProject.us. Referrals are now being accepted.

Students are invited to an appointment at the Boutique several weeks before their prom. With seven high schools in Nevada County, there is a prom nearly every weekend beginning in April. The organization is always looking for more fairy godmothers to assist in the project.
