Louise McFadden: Prom and ball attire available free for high school students

The calendar says it is spring and with that comes important rites of passage in our area schools: junior prom and senior ball.

These are wonderful school events, but taking part in them can be quite costly. Nevada County is fortunate to have an organization called the Cinderella Project to help our young people defray the cost of attending.

On Saturdays from now until May 18 (with the exception of April 20), students can select from hundreds of beautiful dresses (long and short) or make an appointment to order a stylish tuxedo by coming between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 650 Gold Flat Rd. in Nevada City. Free of charge, young people can leave with their prom dreams firmly intact!

If you know of a student who could use a bit of help with the cost of going to a formal high school dance, please pass the word. Questions? Email at nccinderellaproject@gmail.com.

Thanks for spreading the word to help make these events memorable and beautiful nights for the high school students of our community.
