The Cinderella Project Makes Dreams Come True for Pasco Girls

Land O’ Lakes, FL – (March 1, 2018) – Pasco County high school students who have no budget for prom will have six opportunities this year to choose a free ensemble with help from the Cinderella Project’s fairy godmothers.

The Cinderella Project of Pasco is in its 15th year of providing new and gently used prom dresses and accessories at no cost to young ladies with financial need.  Girls from all Pasco County high schools can benefit from the Cinderella Project, according to head “fairy godmother” and organizer Julie Rockwell.  “We have hundreds of beautiful dresses in all colors, styles and bling to choose from”.

The Cinderella Project accepts donations of 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.   

Since 2003, the project has supplied dresses and accessories to more than a thousand Pasco County girls with financial need.  This year, there are three locations – all Pasco County high schools – for the boutiques.

“Our goal is to be sure no one misses their prom because of lack of funds”, said Rockwell.

Students can try on and pick out their ensemble from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the following days:

· March 5 and 6 at Fivay High School, 12115 Chicago Ave., Hudson
· March 7 and 8 at Gulf High School, 5355 School Rd., New Port Richey
· March 12 and 13 at Wesley Chapel High School, 30243 Wells Road, Wesley Chapel

Signs will be posted at the entrances with directions to the boutiques.  For more information about The Cinderella Project, visit their Facebook page, The Cinderella Project Pasco County.
