Cinderella’s Closet coming to Cocalico High on April 6

By on March 30, 2016

 

As the air begins to warm and the flowers start to bloom the students of Cocalico anxiously await the most magical night, prom.

There are many expenses to the prom experience.

The suit, flowers, tickets, and especially the dress, but Cocalico girls do not have to worry about the high expense of the prom dress. An organization known as Cinderella’s Closet is hosted at the Cocalico High School.

This organization has made it a mission to supply formal attire and accessories for free to girls in the district through this event.

This spectacular event is scheduled for April 6 in the high school conference room and adjoining hallway. This program believes that a prom is an essential event for a teenager’s high school experience and should not be missed because of a financial burden.

Cinderella’s Closet is looking for donations from anyone with an extra formal dress sitting in their closet collecting dust. This event will need dresses in any and every size, jewelry, purses and dress shoes. These can be new or gently used. Donations will be accepted in the high school office until the day of the event. A tax deduction form can be provided for the donations.

If you do not have any attire to donate, local salon gift cards will be accepted for raffle prizes for the day of the Cinderella’s Closet event.

Spreading the word is also a giant part of the success of the event. The organizers encourage you to tell your neighbors in the community, family members, friends and former students of Cocalico High School to donate old dresses and accessories.

If there are any questions, contact Elizabeth Bremer, National Honor Society advisor, by email at ebremer@cocalico.org.

Help a young lady enjoy a magical night a reality by giving your old dress a new home.
