Clothes That Work, in partnership with the Dayton Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, presents the 6th annual Fairy Godmother Project on Saturday, March 15 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Clothes That Work, located in The Job Center, 1133 S. Edwin C. Moses Blvd.
The Fairy Godmother Project is directed at prom-going high school girls who are in need of a prom dress and originated with support from Disney On Ice in an effort to allow every girl to feel like a princess on her prom day.
It is anticipated that more than 500 girls will attend the distribution event on March 15, sorted and stocked prom gowns of all sizes are provided in a department store-like setting. The girls will be able to try on as many dresses as they like until they find the perfect dress and coordinating accessories. All dresses and accessories are given to the girls at no cost. Girls wishing to participate may register the day of the event, beginning at 10 a.m., at the Clothes That Work office in the Job Center. Pre-registration is not required.
